Noticing God by Richard Peace

Christians know that God’s presence permeates the world, yet so often we are unaware of him because of our spiritual blindness. Richard Peace urges readers to actively pursue the “spiritual discipline of noticing God.” He spells out ways in which that happens in mystical encounters, in ordinary events, in the experience of hearing God’s still small voice, in community, in creation, culture, and creativity, and in the church. His final chapter, which deals with discernment: “How do we know it is God?” is particularly practical and helpful. Peace asserts that “as we touch the reality of God, in small and large ways, that reality transforms us.” The book concludes with a guide for personal reflection and group discussion.
