A Place for God: The Mowbray Lent Book 2018 [9781472945266]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

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.


AUTHOR: Graham James is Bishop of Norwich and a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4's Thought for the Day. He is the author of The Lent Factor (Bloomsbury Continuum).
