Winter into Spring 2018 - God Soaked Life by Chris Webb.

Hodder and Stoughton  ISBN 978-1-473-66526-2   £12.99.

God’s presence permeates our lives and activities, reverberating throughout all he has created. As we open our lives to that presence, we hear the truth of the gospel spoken to our hearts.

 

Take a good look out of the window. Hear the Gospel whisper in your ear: “the kingdom of God has come to you”. (Luke 11.20).

Chris Webb, an Anglican priest and retreat house director, wants us all to enter into that kingdom and to experience its freedom. Written with verve, depth and uncontainable joy, God Soaked Life invites us to live in the reality of God’s presence in our everyday lives. It’s an invitation into the community of God’s people, into fearless honesty about our own weaknesses and failures, into the daily experience of God through silence, Scripture and prayer, and into a new life of love and service in the broken world around us.

God’s kingdom is not far away, a remote and future promise. It is here, now.
