On the edge of medieval maps, monsters roam. In the west, pilgrims take well-traveled roads to Rome and Compostela. In the east, Old Testament history unfolds. And at the center, in the city of Jerusalem, Jesus saves the world. In A World Transformed, Lisa Deam takes us on an incredible journey through medieval maps. Despite their curious appearance, these maps, as Deam shows, are surprisingly modern. In their monstrous, marvelous sights lie treasure troves of wisdom to guide twenty-first-century Christians on their walk with God. Each chapter in this geographical journey links medieval maps to biblical concepts and spiritual practices that transform our faith and our world. ""The modern era did much damage to the faith, especially in its bias against anything 'old'--'Chronological Snobbery, ' as C. S. Lewis called it. Now as many disillusioned, directionless Evangelicals look to orient their modern compasses toward timeless truth, they are turning in great numbers to the ancient good of the Christian faith. Deam has expertly unpacked a beautiful spiritual map that points us home--and it's a surprising journey that can change your life."" --Chris Alford, Pastor, Epiclesis, Sacramento, CA ""As someone who trains people in spiritual direction, I highly recommend Deam's book. . . . Like any good map, it will orient you to a new way of seeing--you will look through this time and place to another paradigm of living that can encourage Christians on their spiritual path today. By making medieval maps accessible and applicable to modern life, this book will help you discover your place in the story God is telling about the world."" --Jeanie Hoover, Executive Director, Transformational Listening Center, Prospect Heights, IL ""A World Transformed is a beautifully written and spiritually enriching book. Deam takes us on a journey of faith inspired by the Christ-centered world depicted in medieval maps. I know of few books that do such an amazing job of bringing serious historical scholarship and Christian spirituality together in a way that serves the needs of the church and its people."" --John Fea, Chair of the Department of History, Messiah College, Mechanicsburg, PA Lisa Deam has a PhD in art history from the University of Chicago. She writes and speaks on medieval art, maps, and spirituality.
