Product Description

Have you ever been warmed by a baby's smile and sensed that there's more to life's ordinary events than what you see? Perhaps you were experiencing a sacramental moment. In this penetrating look at the holy, Nelson reveals how vocation, communion, confession, confirmation, marriage, baptism, last rites, and service point to God's presence in everyday life. 192 pages, softcover from Brazos.

Publisher's Description

Have you ever had a conversation that went far deeper than the words spoken or an experience where you felt you had participated in something sacred? Although these situations may seem unexplainable, they are reminders that God's grace surrounds us constantly and shows up in manifold ways. In this colorful, story-driven introduction to sacramental living, veteran journalist Dean Nelson offers all Christians a way to see the presence of God amid the chaos and monotony of everyday life. Each chapter emphasizes a different kind of sacramental moment, showing how it can be a lens through which we can see more of God.

Author Bio

Dean Nelson (PhD, Ohio University) is founder and director of the journalism program at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California, where he serves as professor of journalism. He has written extensively for dozens of newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times, Boston Globe, and Christianity Today, and is the author or coauthor of several books.

Endorsements

“In a world where so much miraculous is perceived as ordinary, Dean Nelson points out the places where we see God in our everyday lives, helping us understand that the mundane might actually be holy. In a wonderful narrative, Nelson weaves the sacred presence of God through his text, and reveals that thread also running through our own lives. A lovely read.” — Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz

“Dean Nelson has a lively, conversational writing style, and this book has wonderful and valuable things to say. I won’t soon forget them.” — Frederick Buechner, author of Listening to Your Life

“Dean Nelson is God’s spy, looking for God in all the times and places most of us would never think of looking. He doesn’t miss much. Nelson combines a journalist’s gift for involving us in the stories that are happening all around us with a professor’s attentiveness to the sacramental nature of this God-created, Christ-redeemed life in which we are immersed. Combining the readability of excellent writing and the reliability of sound scholarship, God Hides in Plain Sight is better than a spy novel.” — Eugene Peterson, translator of The Message, professor of spiritual theology emeritus, Regent College, Vancouver

“Dean Nelson writes beautifully. And no less wonderful, he sees beautifully and knows how to help us see what he sees. In God Hides in Plain Sight, he will help you spot what is most worth seeing (and very easily missed): the beauty of God camouflaged in the sacrament of your daily experience, around you, right now, whoever and wherever you are.” — Brian McLaren, author, activist, brianmclaren.net

“If God is indeed hidden in the world around us, then we’re blessed to have a warm, entertaining tour guide in Dean Nelson. He leads us through the sacraments with humor and creative insight, expertly pointing out the places—and the Presence—most of us miss along the way.” — Jason Boyett, author of Pocket Guide to the Bible and Pocket Guide to the Afterlife
