Brazos Press God Hides in Plain Sight: How to See the Sacred in a Chaotic World

Have you ever been warmed by a baby's smile and sensed that there's more to life's ordinary events than what you see? Perhaps you were experiencing a sacramental moment. In this penetrating look at the holy, Nelson reveals how vocation, communion, confession, confirmation, marriage, baptism, last rites, and service point to God's presence in everyday life. 192 pages, softcover from Brazos.

I am nearing the end of this wonderful book. Dean has shared with us through his humor and sorrows, some of the great ways in which we can see God in the mundane. Too often, we miss these experiences because they are not the big things. Dean reminds us that more often than not, God makes Himself known to us in the little things. I recommend this book for spiritual formation classes, small group Bible studies and personal reflection.

Just finished reading this book and I'm sure I'll read it more than once, so the insights gleaned from it stay fresh in my mind and heart. I feel like my 'sacred radar' has been given a tune up! Now I tread more lightly throughout my day, trying not to miss the sacred moments going on all around me. I related to so many stories in the book. I cried, I winced, I laughed out loud! It truly changed the way I view my circumstances from the past and I will look, with different eyes, at those circumstances yet to come. Not a preachy-type of book, just one not-so-perfect Christian sharing with another, on a level that can relate to anyone---Christian or not.

I'm only on chapter 3 but I can say that this book has already met my expectations. Dean writes clearly, warmly and honestly. For those who are looking to find the sacred in their everyday lives, this title will not disappoint.
