  • A new book by Esther de Waal is a major publishing event. Her first significant new work for some years, it encapsulates her mature reflection on using the everyday circumstances of our lives - the restrictions and frustrations as well as the gifts and opportunities - as our very own way to God. She teaches us how to be attentive when we are walking, sitting still or taking a bus journey to work; preparing food or gardening; reading, resting, relaxing. All the seemingly small and insignificant things of our lives then become windows through which the light of Christ can shine to dispel darkness, illuminate our understanding and speak to our deepest needs. As we recover the gift of childlike wonder, we begin to see that spiritual fruitfulness does not depend on our anxious performance, but is a gift we may receive freely.
