Spotting the Sacred: Noticing God in the Most Unlikely Places Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most people these days are overwhelmed by the busyness of life, and so they often miss the little evidences of God's presence and activity around them. In contrast, Jesus led a full life but never hurried. He took time to notice his surroundings, and he often saw and then pointed out great spiritual truths in the everyday experiences of life. Using Jesus as a model, Bruce Main explores the act of noticing as a means for spiritual growth. Filled with engaging, often poignant stories that illustrate acts of godly virtue, Spotting the Sacred will challenge and encourage readers to go through their day more attuned to God's work in their lives and the lives of others.

Synopsis:

Helps readers to look at the world as Jesus looked at it, drawing living contemporary parables to show how God wants us to live today.

Slow down and see what you've been missing Most of us are overwhelmed by the busyness of our lives and the incessant demands on our attention--so overwhelmed that we often miss the little signs of God's presence and activity around us. In contrast, Jesus led a full life but never hurried. He took time to notice his surroundings, and he often saw and then pointed out great spiritual truths in the common, everyday experiences of life.

Filled with engaging, often poignant stories that illustrate acts of godly virtue--gratitude, compassion, courage, and more--Spotting the Sacred will challenge and encourage you to go through your day more attuned to God's work in your life and in the lives of others. "Bruce Main writes out of a wealth of experience coming from years of ministry in one of the desperately needy cities in America. He is a master storyteller and biblical scholar, and in this book he is at the top of his game."--Tony Campolo, professor emeritus of sociology, Eastern University "Bruce Main has learned to look beyond the sacred page to discover what God is doing in the world around him. And what he has found in his looking is exciting stuff. This is a book for all of us who need help in 'spotting the sacred.'"--Richard J. Mouw, president and professor of Christian philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary Bruce Main is the executive director of UrbanPromise Ministries in Camden, New Jersey, and has developed satellite programs in several other cities.
