A Place for God

Full Product Description

  • Looking for a unique Lent book?
  • Graham James returns with a book about the places that inspire his faith
  • Perfect for developing a reflective response to the world around you

Much like the beloved poem of Dr Seuss, ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go’, the new Lent devotional from  Graham James celebrates journeys of all kinds. A series of reflections from his own travels, A Place for God shows the spiritual lessons you can draw from your environments.

From the dramatic mountain ranges of Australia to a humble flat in Peterborough, each place has a message and meaning. Each place reveals God in its own way.

As potent for the traveller as the homely, A Place for God is not a brochure of exotic destinations. Rather, it is a look towards the creator of the world, the meaning of pilgrimage, and God’s place in the world today. Graham James shares over 40 short chapters, much as he did with The Lent Factor, ways of finding God in unexpected people and places.

So, whether on a walk to the shops or a hike across the alps, you’ll be confident in knowing that a place for God can be found around every next corner.

Publisher's Description

In his previous book The Lent Factor, Graham James wrote about 40 people (one for each day of Lent) who had inspired him and helped to shape his spiritual journey. Here, he turns his attention to places as diverse as the Flinders Ranges (Australia), Dogura (Papua New Guinea), Walsingham (Norfolk), St Germans (Cornwall), Shepherd's Law (Northumberland), WW2 Air Control bunkers in Valetta (Malta), Billy Bray's Chapel (Cornwall), Dominus Flevit (Jerusalem), the Manaus Opera House (Brazil), St Helen's (an uninhabited island in the Isles of Scilly), the Moses Room (House of Lords), 39 Waltham Close (his flat when he was a curate in Peterborough) and Port Arthur (Tasmania).

As with The Lent Factor, some of the subjects are well known and others very obscure: what they have in common is the part they have played in the author's life in enabling his 'discovery of the divine in the landscape and the built environment, and of a God who always locates himself in our world, supremely revealed in Jesus of Nazareth'. 

Structured as 40 short chapters, one for each day of Lent, A Place for God lends itself naturally to the Lent reader, but also has a much wider frame of reference.
