Beauty's Field

Seeing The World

by Laurence Freeman


Price: £12.99
Publisher:Canterbury Press imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
Published:07 October 2014

I know Laurence Freeman from his wonderful Christian Meditation books, and here I find another wonderful series of meditations and contemplations, but these are taken from his journals and his travels around the world, here we meet a host of peoples form many different places and many different situations and through them we see glimpses of the ordinary and the transformed, we see hope and loss, community and isolation, but most of all through these we hopefully will come to see ourselves and our potential and most of all we will meet the sacred and divine in each other too.

This is a beautiful book with 40 short thoughtful engagements, contemplations, meetings that are well worth taking a day each to think on. Though not intended as such it would make a wonderful alternative lenten companion, but it stands alone at any time.
