Realistic examination of life's difficulties from a faith perspective.

Many people who face a crisis in their lives can, with the right guidance and encouragement, come to claim it as a kairos moment, an opportunity for growth, inner nourishment and renewal. All of us can be suddenly confronted with a decisive moment of difficulty or change. But fear prevents many of us from seizing the day. This book helps to steer us through the watershed. In this text, written for spiritual seekers of any age, Ford draws on his extensive experience of interviewing people at the turning point of their lives, from the Hollywood actress who becomes a nun, to survivors of terrorist attacks, to those struggling with loss and addiction.

Michael Ford is a broadcast journalist and an award-winning author of spiritual biographies, including Henri Nouwen, one of the most revered spiritual writers of the 20th century.

"Watershed is an amazing blend of testimony and spirituality book. Each section offers up small but beautifully insightful personal testimonies from a range of people from the famous like Juliette Binoche, French actress, artist and dancer, and Bruno Tonioli , an Italian choreographer and TV personality, to people we know only by their first names like David and Stephen, each with a story to tell of a watershed moment in their lives and in their faith. For some this watershed led on to ministry endeavours for others it led them just into a general spirituality and awareness of faith, for the reader it leads them into a very considered and deep awareness of the necessity of making choices and of the awareness of how faith can find us in the strangest of moments.

"Each chapter opens with a short but thoughtful piece on the circumstances that can lead us to these watershed moments and then there are usually two object lessons told through the testimonies of people who have experienced such things, and all of this in the lead up to the authors own insight into his watershed moment, the catalyst that lies at the heart of the books existent, his own journey to realising his calling to ministry and ordination.

"This is a book on calling, yes, perfect for anyone considering what being called means, but this is a book more for anyone who has doubts as to what perhaps faith is, what their journey is all about, and what action are they being called to take. A truly wonderful book that came along at just the right time for this reader and shone a light on their own Watershed moment."
