Book Description Penguin Books, 2003. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Donald McCullough, a respected Presbyterian pastor and president of the San Francisco Theological Seminary, lost his job and suffered estrangement from friends and family when a private confession of an affair became public knowledge. Facing a bleak, uncertain future, his faith utterly shaken, McCullough was left with nothing to do but to walk along the ocean shore by his home. Then he noticed the pelicans. Observing these evolutionary "survivors," he marveled at how they had developed graceful yet resilient techniques for flourishing on the margins of the earth, the mysterious border of land and sea. In this moving meditation on life, loss, and faith, McCullough reveals how he drew strength from nature almost unconsciously, gradually recovering a sense of hope.
