The search for truth took Esther Baker deep into Buddhism. Yet it wasn’t until Jesus Christ disturbed her monastic life that her longings really began to be fulfilled. This gripping story depicts her journey from emptiness to fullness of life, and from idolatry to worship of the living God.
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?
