A Collection of Illustrated Meditations on the Personality of God
This book is about the soul reaching out to God, seeking understanding. The author writes, "I set out to discover in the Gospels something of God's Personality as He revealed Himself by becoming incarnate, living in human form. I have tried to express my thoughts, in words and in illustrations, in a very personal way. It has been enlightening! "I hope the pictures illustrate that when we go through positive experiences, God shares these, and (importantly) when we are overwhelmed by negative feelings and all seems "darkness", and we may even feel distant from God, in actual fact He is very close to us. Because Jesus suffered what we suffer, He shows us that He takes part in our "lows" as well as our "highs"."

What Reviewers Are Saying
"THIS IS A truly original work. It is marked throughout by a simplicity which is the outcome of a deep spirituality. It is profound and accessible, encouraging through the understanding of God and our life. The beautiful and deeply feeling illustrations are all of a piece with the writing, and together they make for inspirational meditations. It is a very special work indeed. I recommend it very highly." Richard Eyre, Dean Emeritus of Exeter Cathedral // "IN A QUIET, thoughtful tone, the 34 meditations - each a page long - develop ideas and thoughts around topics such as 'God is Protective', 'God is Wise', 'God is Sustaining', in a manner that allows the reader to reflect upon and deepen their experience of Christ as being the 'perfect reflection of the nature of God'. The head and heart are both engaged, and this book speaks more to the human condition than can a shelf-full of scholarly theological volumes or strident fundamentalist polemics. I commend it." Richard Skinner, poet and author // "DISCOVERING God is a deeply insightful and extremely accessible set of meditations enriched and amplified by beautiful and sensitive illustrations - each one a meditation in itself." Abbot Stuart, OSB // "THIS SIMPLICITY [of images] carries through to the language of the book, which is clear, direct, and eminently readable. Whilst being deeply rooted in the Gospels, with quotes and references where appropriate, the book is unburdened by theological jargon, and remains accessible to all." Bernadette Meaden, Ekklesia // "THE BOOK exudes a loving peacefulness as it doubly engages the reader through its combination of word and complementary drawing." Margaret Daniels, Methodist Recorder // "THERE IS so little out there for new Christians, but this would be perfect. Modern people struggle not just with believing in God, but understanding who he is and how he operates. This will plug that gap and does so gently." The Church of England Newspaper
