Angels of the popular imagination tend to be docile and blandly gentle, rather than being genuine forces for change. Wake up! The kick-ass angels are coming! When we find ourselves suffering from lethargy or frustration, when we are unable to make progress and repeatedly encounter the same problems, and when we start to lose sight of our higher aspirations - then we need to invoke the kick-ass angels. This book teaches us how to call on these exceptionally vigorous angelic forces of change and accept the surprising messages they have for us. Kick-ass angels are not soft and indulgent - but nor are they bullies or tyrants who use severity inappropriately. They are concerned only with our awakening and with our progress. They are unafraid of the grave secrets we may have buried within ourselves. Their mission is to cleanse - to exorcise our demons, to purge us of our fears and banish our self-imposed limitations. To fulfil our potential we all need the kick-ass angels' help in our daily lives. And collectively we need their help at this point in our history - with the aid of the kick-ass angels, the transformation of our future can begin.

Over fifty joyous years, David Adam has exercised a rich and profoundly influential ministry. From his earliest days, he was encouraged to use his eyes to absorb what was around him. He writes: 'I lived in a land of open fields, moorland, and beaches: a land of castles, of history, of heroes, saints and story . . . a radiant world . . . full of the mystery of existence.' Leaving school at 15 to work at the local coal mine, he became increasingly aware of the need to have a purpose in life. The Society of the Sacred Mission at Kelham (regarded as 'the Commando course of the Church of England') was his tough training ground, and thereafter he embarked on a 23 year ministry in Danby in the North York Moors. During this time The Edge of Glory: Prayers in the Celtic Tradition was published. Many more bestselling volumes were to follow during the exhilarating, exhausting and unforgettable thirteen years he served as Vicar of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Though autobiographical, the aim of The Wonder of the Beyond is primarily to help us enter a more wonder full world; to open our eyes, ears and hearts to what is about us; to become more truly aware of the glory of God in our midst.
