God of SurprisesMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
First published in November 1985, Gerard Hughes’ three prefaces (to the three different editions) are all here in this book and are well worth reading or re-reading. He sets out very clearly how readers can travel what he calls the inner journey, using some, or all of his chapters depending on their need. He says, "This book has only one purpose – to suggest some ways of detecting the hidden treasure in what you may consider a most unlikely field, yourself." This is a guidebook providing signposts to the God of surprises, based on the parable of the treasure in the field. The work is not done for us, the exercises at the end of each chapter are to enable us to use the signposts provided. It surely needs working through again and again, each time digging a little deeper.

'God of Surprises is one of the great books of spiritual guidance. A lovely, wise and lucid book of deep humanity. Above all, it is a useful book - a book to be used by those who find it hard to forgive themselves: the stumblers and agnostics who hardly dare believe that God is within them.' - Gerald Priestland
'Simply to read God of Surprises is to misuse it and miss much of its value. It is a book to use, working through it and at it again and again.' - The Baptist Times
'God of Surprises is characterised throughout by practical wisdom and humanity, deep thoughts and light touches, and a very sympathetic style of teaching ... This is a book to own and use and work into one's life.' - The Church Times
