Lydia Phillips has been assigned to oversee a Christian book to be written for her book publishing employer. The only problem is that she hates Christian books and the people that read them. Motivated by pride and professionalism, she sets out to complete the tasks connected to the project, and before it's finished, she finds herself on an unexpected spritual journey of her own. More
Lydia Phillips has a degree in comparative literature and she thought she had found a dream job at a publishing company, but it hasn't quite worked out that way. Her boss is out of touch, and new ideas are routinely ignored. Suddenly, she is commissioned to oversee the compilation of a Christian self-help book, even though she has no faith background of her own. She needs to research the industry, interview potential authors, and navigate company policies just to get the book started. An unlikely friends helps her on her way, and the whole process becomes a kind of spiritual journey for her. In the narrative spirituality genre, like The Shack and A New Kind of Christian, A Pie Plate Pilgrimage invites you on a journey of progress and decline, of tearing down and building up, and of asking and discovering.
