Overview

Facing a terminal cancer diagnosis, David Bryant looks back on his life and writes powerfully about the moments when he unexpectedly encountered God in the most unlikely places: a high security prison; at the bedside of a dying child; in the gift of imagination; or in Bible passages that have been startlingly brought to life in his own experience.

Forty reflections offer a reading a day for Lent, with an explanatory introduction and a concluding Easter meditation. He draws widely on poetry, literature, art, music, and above all human encounter, to trace a divine thread running through a life that has been 'always unpredictable and often surprising'.

David Bryant died shortly after delivering this final book to his publishers.
