How a person perceives a book differs from one person to the next, so some books connect and others don't. The focus on this book is on our spiritual journey -- our life as spiritual nomads, on the road to Joy.

The course of the story begins in our own prison cells that keep us from experiencing joy and moves forward along a path taken in conjunction with the Holy Nomad, Jesus Christ. The book is comprised of seven movements: 1 A life sentence, 2 We Were Made to be Nomads; 3 Carry-on Baggage - How a person perceives a book differs from one person to the next, so some books connect and others don't. It's a book that helps a person identify the road, gets them on the road, and helps provide guidance along the way.
It's a reminder that we do go alone and that along the way we can do important work, even as we overcome obstacles. As I opened with, how we respond to a book is an individual thing. I believe the book can have a useful life, but personally I never connected with the author. The author uses lots of stories, but I never felt like I knew who is. Now I could go to his website and find out more, but I wish in the course of the book, he could tell me enough to want to make me heed his words.
Where does he come from? Where does he live? Not just in the abstract, but in reality.

That we are too attached to material possessions, and should give them up but not literally in order to follow the Spiritual Nomad, Jesus. What does it mean to follow Jesus? It means we stop being so attached to worldly things like possessions, image, and reputation and instead care about following Jesus. But what does that mean practically? You should just follow him. But by and large the problem with the book is that it—like most 21st century religion—is devoid of any substantial theology.
Oct 21, Chris rated it really liked it Shelves: christian-ministry. The author is a wordsmith and I love that. I found myself anticipating more and more artisan use of the English language as the journey through his experience materialized on every page. The lasting contribution I think this book makes to the overloaded shelves of popular Christian inspiration is the call to live out of a much deeper source than comfort, achievement, or even purpose. A life driven by joy continually puts one in contact with God To make any s The author is a wordsmith and I love that.
To make any sense of conflict and tragedy in life, we must have a theology of suffering, joy, and the metaphor of journey. By the time I finished Holy Nomad, I was dreaming about how my relationships, church experience, vocation, and family life could look a little more "nomadic. Jul 20, Stacey Lozano rated it it was ok Shelves: , devotional. This book reads like a conglomeration of blog posts on the same topic. It could have easily been shared there and had more continuation from one chapter to the next. While it wasn't a horrible book there were definitely sections I took exception to, including his chapter "eye for an eye.
He focuses on the phrase "peacemakers" but he forgets that peace is not the absence of war, and that the devil is out to kill, steal, and destroy.

If we allow the devil to do that then we can't do what God has for us to do. Due to this chapter and a few other odds and ends I really wouldn't suggest anyone picking this book up.

Beautiful words. Beautiful message. Nov 16, Philippe Lazaro rated it it was ok Shelves: christian. The nomadic journey is fueled and sustained by the questions we are courageous enough to ask. While the book itself had some interesting pieces and nothing I found disagreeable, it also mostly affirmed things I felt weren't up for question. I suppose that means I didn't get a whole lot out of it, but I appreciated "True nomads are driven by curiosity. I suppose that means I didn't get a whole lot out of it, but I appreciated the theme.

A bit rambling and random at times, but there are a few really great nuggets worth digging for.
Lori Patterson rated it really liked it Jan 15, They traveled about, working odd jobs, camping in exotic places, and collecting amazing stories as they went. My friends one now an organic farmer and the other a college professor hoped that their travels might be a life-changing, fulfilling experience.
They were kites without a string, that longing deep in their hearts to wander was finally being realized. Traveling for the sake of the journey was a hollow expedition. They finally parked their van and spent months working with the homeless, the poor, and the drug-addicted at a mission on Skid Row in Los Angeles. It was the acceptance of responsibility and sacrifice they learned as they labored hours cleaning, serving, and walking among the lost and forgotten souls of 5th Street in L. Both of them can still be moved to emotion as they reminisce, not about camping under the stars on mountaintops, rather by the memory of ministering to hopeless men.
There among the brokenness and poverty, my bewhiskered friends came face-to-face with a real King, a Holy Nomad, who gave purpose to their lives. They learned that joy and meaning are found not by wandering, but by following. It was not the perfect brand of sandals that allowed him to tread those miles or latest Polartec robe that kept him from the elements.
