Publisher's Summary

The purpose of this book is to suggest ways of finding the treasure in what we may consider an unlikely field - ourselves. Through many practical suggestions for heightened prayer, including Ignatian exercises and Jungian exploration, God of Surprises guides readers along the inner journey that reveals to us a God we may not have expected to find.

Beautiful and clear theology for our time.

I particularly treasure the excercises at the end of the chapters all pointing to a closer relationship with the Spirit within us all.

Classic Book; Clueless Narrator

This is a classic book and the narrator has a very pleasant voice but OH MY GOODNESS doesn't anyone 'proof listen' to these things?? I am by no means a pedant and the odd mispronunciation really doesn't bother me but this audiobook is riddled with howling mispronunciations. I don't mean the odd technical term - the narrator mispronounces lots of fairly everyday words. For instance, he doesn't know that Jung (as in Carl Jung) is pronounced 'Yung', which becomes a little trying in a section of the book exploring Jung's theories.

Narrator Niggles

As a book, this is at times slightly dated, but its core is as sound as the day it was written, and it's a classic. I will return to it many times.
HOWEVER... The lack of knowledge of the narrator of pronunciation of religious and biblical terms really undermined the quality of this recording for me. I was disappointed.

Wonderful book - awful narration

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It's read like they've never seen the text before - every few words feels like the start of a new sentence. The book itself is wonderful, but the narrator's intonation is very stilted and makes it rather hard to take it seriously - it begins to sound like an automated reading by a computer...

Excellent content. Awful narration

How is this narrator getting work? Sometimes I wondered if he was a machine, his errors with English pronunciation and enunciation were so fundamental. At times they actually obscured the meaning of the text. Another reviewer attributed this to ignorance of Christian writings but I think it was a more basic ignorance of literary English.
The text itself was inspiring but dated and sometimes patronisingly simplistic.
