The Luggage of Life: A Preacher's Autobiography of Inspiring Stories and Adventures in England and Australia

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Frank Boreham was a minister born in England - his life underwent drastic change when he migrated to Australia, which became both his home and his inspiration.

The Luggage of Life is the most autobiographical book written by the author, recounting the various escapades and challenges that accompanied the changes in his surroundings. Conscious of the fact he was well-traveled and knowledgeable of different countries, Frank Boreham sought to gain and channel his life experiences into his work as a Christian minister. The various anecdotes that comprise this book, of places seen and people met, contributed to a spiritual philosophy the author lived by.

As well as being an insightful and heartening memoir of a worldly person, The Luggage of Life also offers glimpses of life in England and Australia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Observant and reflective by nature, Boreham draws upon the literature he appreciated to articulate his adventures. As a clergyman, he makes apt use of Christian allegory and a uniquely colorful kind of wisdom to further imbue each of these stories with memorable expressiveness seldom seen in autobiographic works by those with a background in the church.
