The scriptures repeatedly admonish believers to repent - to change the way they think and act. Having grown up in the church, Caleb Gave Mathis was familiar with the word "repentance," but not necessarily with its practice. A summer road trip would change all that. Part travel memoir, part personal treatise of faith, this is the sound of a Christ-believing boy straining to grown into a Christ-following man. Each stop along the road trip's route revealed a new lesson, another area in which God was demanding repentance. What started as an adventure into the American heartland ended as a voyage into a place infinitely more exotic, beautiful, and dangerous: the human heart. How does a life change? One mile at a time.
Caleb Gave Mathis discovered his passion for words and writing while a student at the University of Kentucky. After spending two years teaching high school biology, he jumped headfirst into the world of youth ministry. In late 2017, he took a role as a content producer for a church in Cincinnati, Ohio.
He is rather fond of books (especially old ones), North Lime Coffee and Donuts, traveling, dark roast coffee, being outdoors, Wes Anderson movies, gardening, British television, and spending time with his wife and three kids.
