Steps Along the Way
is the spiritual autobiography of Diogenes Allen
, professor emeritus at Princeton Theological Seminary
. In it, he recounts his search for the providence
of God. His journey includes reflections on the evolving role of faith in the world; an exploration of the anguished and eloquent poetry of George Herbert
; a reading of the message of love, duty, and forgiveness in the stories of Joseph and his brothers and the Prodigal Son
; and finally, a simple, but moving, tracing of his own regrets and joys as a person of faith.
