Where God Hides

October 2020 Book Club Pick

Where God Hides
Liam Lawton

In this moving exploration of the path to understanding God’s presence, Liam Lawton considers how we can bring spiritual awakening and consolation into our lives, in every circumstance.

With the wisdom of the Book of Ecclesiastes – “There is a time for everything, and a season for everything under the sun” – Fr. Liam begins his journey of reflection and contemplation.

Over the course of the book, Liam shares remarkable stories of human life and of the people and events that have touched him during his years of ministry, along with fascinating perspectives on his own spiritual awakening.  Here are stories of pain and beauty, challenge and consolation, but, above all, inspiration.

With fourteen chapters filled with story and song, we recommend reading and discussing this book over the course of multiple book club sessions.
