  • Written by the invitation of series editor Bob Wicks-and with a style and warmth reminiscent of histhis new book is for anyone who has looked for God "in all the wrong places." If we look for God only in the extraordinary, we miss his presence in the everydaywhich is the fullest expression of an ongoing relationship. Even in Biblical times, says the author, God revealed himself through the events of ordinary life, and this is the direction in which the Bible encourages us to look.
    The author reflects on several Bible stories on the level of religious experience, so that we feel the characters struggle as they felt it and more easily recognize parallels for ourselves. Here are the stories of Moses, Abraham, Elijah, Job, Paul, Mary, John the Baptist, and others. Gentle and supportive, the book shows how to find God in the ordinary, in the midst of evil, and in the experience of love. Reflection exercises help develop the habit of looking for God where he is most often found.

    This title is for anyone who enjoys Bob Wicks, for clergy and religious, homilists, religious ed directors, campus ministers, retreat directors, and spiritual directors. Its also good for bible study and prayer groups. And of course its perfect for the individual seeker looking for the authentic presence of God
