Already Within: Divining the Hidden Spring is a collection of Daniel O'Leary's contributions to the Tablet. This cd set contains a summing up of the main items of his books and articles from the past and present. The emphasis that appeals to readers so much is that of realising the presence of God in the ordinary moments of their lives. Nothing goes to waste - every effort, every happening, every daily event, even mistakes and sins - all are part of the bigger story; all are safely harvested.
All the cd’s begin with very real life-situations and then explores and discovers the compassionate presence of an incarnate and unconditionally-loving God at the heart of all our experiences.
