Masters of Interior Space: A Novel about the Spiritual Life

by Fr. Lawrence Tucker, SOLT

Is it possible that the real threat to Man’s future is not energy, climate change, or a host of other potential calamities we hear about on a daily basis? Could it be that the greatest danger Man faces is his own lack of spiritual insight and development? Ride along with three college students and a university professor as they fulfill a special mission given them by God to address this very question. Hold on to your camel for the adventure of a lifetime with the… Masters of Interior Space.

DEDICATION

TESTIMONIALS

“Like C.S. Lewis on steroids.” —Dr. Cynthia Toolin-Wilson, author of Survivor: A Memoir of Forgiveness

“Do you want to grow in the spiritual life, more and more united to Jesus? Perhaps you’ve read the spiritual classics but need a new boost? Fr. Larry’s fast-paced, exciting, contemporary, brilliant novel may be just what you need. Full of surprises… I loved it!” —Dr. Ronda Chervin: Catholic TV and Radio Presenter, Spiritual Writer and Professor of Philosophy

“Relevant and timely to today’s world, Masters of Interior Space delves into the story of three brilliant, Christ-focused young adults, a spiritually driven professor, a burro, and a Fennec Fox who form an unforgettable friendship and are called to a very important mission by God Himself. Throughout their travels from the Sahara Desert to New York City, the reader will see how the four main protagonists grow in the Spirit of Christ. Into the heart of the city, they inspire others to abandon the mundane, inner trappings of the world and to realize there is something bigger than themselves. Fr. Lawrence Tucker speaks to the hearts of the struggling, modern youth, encouraging them to look past the worldly issues that hinder our society and to rediscover faith in God, the true solution to today’s troubles.” Danielle Mesa, author of Cardelina
