God's presence seems real in big events, but he's also there in ordinary moments! Yancey shows you where he's discovered the divine---in a South American prison, an Atlanta slum, a pod of whales; in great art, the newspaper, even at church! You'll be challenged to look for grace in unlikely places. Includes reader's guide.
The traces of God can be found in the most unexpected places--an Atlanta slum, a pod of whales off the coast of Alaska, the prisons of Peru and Chile, the plays of Shakespeare, a health club in Chicago--yet many Christians have not only missed seeing God, theyve overlooked opportunities to make him visible to those most in need of hope.
In this enlightening book author Philip Yancey serves as an insightful tour guide for those willing to look beyond the obvious, pointing out glimpses of the eternal where few might think to look. Whether finding God among the newspaper headlines, within the church, or on the job, Yancey delves deeply into the commonplace and surfaces with rich spiritual insight.
Finding God in Unexpected Places takes readers from Ground Zero to the Horn of Africa, and each stop along the way reveals footprints of God, touches of his truth and grace that prompt readers to search deeper within their own lives for glimpses of transcendence.
