The Adventures of Space and Hobo now available in Paperback at Amazon
The Adventures of Space and Hobo, A New Book by Pastor Ken Birks is now available as in paperback at Amazon.com
Space and Hobo are two Viet Nam Veterans who took up the hippie lifestyle and counterculture. They allowed fate to be their guide while navigating through the spiritual maze of the 1970s as they traveled by freight trains and hitchehiked through our nation’s cities. By using their wits and street knowledge, they traveled as vagabonds looking for the next free ride to nowhere in particular while mooching off whatever resources or people who happened to come their way.
Along the way we discover the futility of expecting different surroundings and new happenings to fill what’s missing in ourselves. And we discover the grace of God. We watch as His patience, protection and kindness take every opportunity to express His love and intercept the consciousness of a young man who was looking for more, but didn’t know exactly what. We see the diligent pursuit of a God who won’t let go and can outwit our stubbornness and deception and complacency – A God who knows who are His and won’t stop until we look with awe at how he has called and led us, without force, to a moment of awe-inspiring revelation and a true change of identity, heart and mind.
