A new book by Esther de Waal is a major publishing event. Her first significant new work for some years, it encapsulates her mature reflection on using the everyday circumstances of our lives - the restrictions and frustrations as well as the gifts and opportunities - as our very own way to God. She teaches us how to be attentive when we are walking, sitting still or taking a bus journey to work; preparing food or gardening; reading, resting, relaxing. All the seemingly small and insignificant things of our lives then become windows through which the light of Christ can shine to dispel darkness, illuminate our understanding and speak to our deepest needs. As we recover the gift of childlike wonder, we begin to see that spiritual fruitfulness does not depend on our anxious performance, but is a gift we may receive freely.
-Publisher

'To take time to be apart...is not a luxury, it is essential. The gift of space for myself seems so simply, and in a way it is; but it is also surprisingly difficult to do without some form of external encouragement. And that is the very simple purpose of this book.' With these words, Esther de Waal begins to show us ways into a fuller and deeper sense of attentiveness to the world around us and to the presence of God in the world. Combining monastic, Celtic and desert traditions, she offers a practical guide to finding God through the everyday circumstances of life. Seemingly small, insignificant things then become windows through which the light of Christ can shine. Many aspects of modern life can distract us: busyness, boredom, stress, lethargy, lack of direction. Yet Christ's invitation to each of us is 'Come and see'. Responding to this call, Lost in Wonder clears and refreshes our inner vision, teaching us again how to use those gifts we may have come to take for granted or forgotten we had: sight, sound, silence, awareness, mystery, wonder.
