When life’s sorrows bring us into shadowlands, we need the joy of Christ to restore our strength. We tap into this joy by nurturing a deeper longing for God. Shadowlands and Songs of Light: An Epic Journey into Joy and Healing takes you on a quest for joy and a life-changing longing for God.
Written by a C. S. Lewis expert and a skilled composer, the book explores 18 beloved C. S. Lewis classics, from Narnia to Mere Christianity, and 13 spiritual principles behind the art of songwriting, as seen in 13 studio albums by U2–all to answer one question: how do we experience deeper joy in our relationship with Christ during times of sorrow and trial?
Shadowlands is available to pre-order at Amazon or ChristianBooks.com. If you pre-order a copy, the author will personally email you with a thank-you note and a copy of his upcoming e-book devotional “Devotions with Tolkien,” which uses J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic “The Lord of the Rings” and Scripture. (This is all on the honor system: simply pre-order Shadowlands, and then send an email to shadowlands2016 (at) gmail (dot) com letting the author (Kevin Ott) know you’ve ordered it, and he will contact you.)

At Rocking God’s House, we hope to help Christians use creative thinking tools to see the beauty of Christ more vividly in their lives–in the physical world around them, in their relationships, churches, ministries, worship teams, careers, and in the sorrows and joys of life. The creative topics of music and entertainment provide launch points for this lifelong quest to pursue Christ.
The following video, an essay by C. S. Lewis sketched out–idea after idea–in doodle/sketch form. It’s a visual wonder and a marvelous example of creative thinking in a Christian context.
