The world and life can be inspiring, hopeful, and full of love, yet so often the world can seem to overflow with evil, pain, and tragedy. In those dark times it can be so difficult to see the good, and in those moments we can be left with doubt, isolation, and confusion. Even an abiding faith in God can be shaken to the core, leaving us alone with the evil and without a glimmer of hope. Yet when the universe darkens, God will answer with His light and his love.
In Where Icarus Failed to Fly, authors William and Emily Andrews share a love story that encompasses four years in their lives together as husband and wife, and it offers a psychological and theological analysis of evil and its handmaidens: ego and economics. Their story begins with an adventure that takes them through the valley where the shadows of death lie heavily across their pathways (Psalm 23:4). And in the end, the story culminates in a soteriological victory credited to the principles of love and the spiritual truths guiding them through their livesespecially through the torturous meanderings of those several years, and even following Williams death.
There are three great gifts from God in the world: faith, hope, and love. But by far, the greatest of these is love. Join William and Emily as they open this divine gift of love and share it together, being carried through their lives together on their way to becoming.
