This year’s Go To Nations Experience theme was both unique and appropriate for their chosen venue: The Conference Center at the Jacksonville Main Public Library. William Manchester’s 1992 book, A World Lit Only By Fire, is a narrative depicting the “dim era” of the literally Dark Ages of medieval history; including not only the desperate times of ineffable struggle for survival, but also highlighting the turbulence that was the Christian faith, leading to a time of both Protestant revival and Renaissance.
