A truly amazing explication of the foundational Christian message. As relevant today as when it was written a century ago. Lilias Trotter, art protégé of John Ruskin, left her home in London in 1888—committing the rest of her life to the spiritual and physical well being of the people of Algeria. She worked tirelessly in the city. In the desert, she fostered respectful relationships with Muslim mystics. Addressed to this Sufi brotherhood, this volume—Trotter’s 1926 flagship publication—masterfully lays out the Christian gospel as posed by the apostle John as the seven I Ams of Christ. For each element—Bread. Light. Door. Shepherd. True Vine . . .—Trotter engages the reader’s heart and intellect, showing how Jesus Himself satisfies life’s basic longings . . . of satisfaction, illumination, access, leadership, progress. As Dr. Miriam Adeney states in the book introduction, “Although [Trotter] wrote The Way of the Sevenfold Secret for her Sufi friends, the book speaks to every person who aches for something more.”
