God Where Are You?
Full Product Description
Of course, it is the divine within us who really poses the question, and when we truly begin to search for an answer, we will discover that God is already looking for us!
In this brilliantly illuminating volume, Enzo Bianchi reasons that, above all, the story of God is the story of his relationship with his people. In order to help us get to know this God of our fathers, he analyses a number of encounters between the Lord and significant figures in the Old Testament. The author suggests we can be challenged to question our own certainties like Abraham, suffer torment like Jacob, or falter and become discouraged in the face of a daunting task like Moses.
The search for God involves exploring what is profoundly human, and the greatest manifestation of humanity is to be found in the figure of Christ. That is why we cannot think of God today without turning our minds to Jesus.
God Where Are You? by Enzo Bianchi was published by SPCK in January 2014 and is our 63071st best seller. The ISBN for God Where Are You? is 9780281069590.

God, Where Are You?Jon Mayled, via The Good Book Stall
This is the second book of a series which began with Words of Spirituality: Exploring the Inner Life. Described by Rowan Williams as ‘one of the most significant Christian voices in Europe', Fr Enzo Bianchi is the founder of the Bose community in northern Italy. This is an ecumenical community of both men and women established in 1965 when Bianchi was a layman.
His argument is epitomised by the phrase:
‘God, where are you?' we cry.
‘Where are you?' cries God.
The author argues that the story of God is that of his relationship with his people. He exemplifies this by looking at the patriarchs of the Old Testament: questioning our certainties as did Abraham, suffering like Jacob and being discourage as was Moses. He further looks at Elijah in the wilderness and the vocation of Isaiah.
Bianchi then continues by looking at the person of Jesus—God became man—so that man can become truly man. He reads through the Bible identifying key passages showing the relationship between humanity and God and concludes:
‘Indeed, the God of Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Elijah and Isaiah, the God revealed to us in Jesus Christ, dwells in his community and in each one of us, if in faith and love we can recognize ourselves as his children and as brothers and sisters of one another, that is, we can love one another as Jesus has loved us.'
