Review:

 

Reading this delightful book is like jumping into a jacuzzi of bubbling words. Stimulating and refreshing. Sister Elizabeth Pio asks us to imagine ourselves in various locations as we read Bible passages which she has chosen 'at random'. We sit down with her and her faithful Parsons Jack Russell in places including the train station, the pub, the kitchen, a car boot sale and in front of the TV watching some unlikely programmes!

As Sister Pio shares what she thinks God is saying about each passage, we are encouraged to hear for ourselves what God may be saying to us. More than that it inspires us to keep on meditating on God's word in our own unexpected spaces and places.

I love the humour, the insight and the cultural relevance of this book. Miss it, miss out!
