God Lost and Found
Full Product Description
John Pritchard acknowledges that, deep down, many of today's church goers can find themselves disillusioned with God and even cease to believe in him. The book describes such disillusioned feelings as 'losing touch with a living experience of God.'
So what makes a person's faith weaken and break down? The reasons for this can be multi-faceted: Pritchard is not satisfied with a devout-Christian, pious interpretation. The author sheds light on his personal experience of losing faith and discusses various aspects of his faith that he believes may have contributed to his disillusions.
There is much that can then be explored in order to put a reconstructed faith on a surer footing. 'God Lost and Found' offers many unique qualities and insights that will force you to confront your honest feelings towards God. The book then progresses into a helpful discussion that will provide you with various starting points for rediscovering your faith in God.
"This is an unusually honest book. Its analysis is plain-spoken and compassionate, and what Bishop John has to say about finding ways to live constructively with times of emptiness is superbly well focused. You'll emerge from reading this with - probably - relief that a widespread set of challenges has been so sensitively identified and - certainly - with gratitude for sensible, durable advice on how to go on making friends with the mystery we can never digest or contain." - Archbishop Rowan Williams

God Lost and FoundJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
In God Lost and Found, Bishop John Pritchard looks at why we lose our faith in God and go through dark periods and at how we can rediscover God again. There is a freshness, joy and gentleness in tone and content, in navigating the gains and losses of life's pathway. The complexity and pain of our lives receives a pastor-leaders consummate wisdom and presence without a trace of piety or cliché. The chattering culture and the dry well were areas of particular appreciation for this reader. Refreshing honesty, empathy and insight. Hope will be born again for the reader!
