‘Suddenly I found myself, with my shaven head and dark-brown robe, running down to the traditional Anglican church in the nearby village. I thought … “I’ve got to talk to somebody, I’ve got to understand what’s happening to me.”‘

Esther Baker had been a Buddhist for over thirteen years. Her search for truth drove her up through the ranks of a Buddhist nun and deeper into a life of meditation and detachment from the world. But then, one day,alone in her room,the perfect shadow of a cross fell on her wall, and, unbidden, Christ began to enter her life. Would anything ever be the same again?

‘I highly recommend this book to all seekers of the truth and all who long to see if Jesus is real today.’ Jackie Pullinger

‘Sometimes the best guides to discovering Jesus Christ are those who can articulate the darkness they have walked in and their revelation of the true light. Esther Baker is one such guide.’ From the foreword by Andrew Comiskey
