Finding God in All Things

Fr Brian Grogan has written an extraordinary book for ordinary people. In simple, clear language he shows how God is involved in all the details of our lives.

“God does not blush easily at our faults,” he writes. “In failure or in success, every individual remains uniquely important to God. He waits for us, searches for us, and cares for us; always drawing us to the person of Jesus, who offers himself as our constant companion on our pilgrim way and who helps us to shape our world by making wise decisions.”

Extensively revised edition.

God you’re Breaking my Heart – What is God’s Response to Suffering and Evil?

What is God’s Response to Suffering and Evil? The line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. It is easy to denounce evildoers, but more difficult to understand them. This means that we, who are at best imperfect, have a hard time understanding ourselves as well as others.

This book offers hope and challenge. The title has a double meaning: the slow sad music of humankind can indeed break our hearts; but God allows and uses suffering only to enlarge our heart’s capacity for that greater love that is its destiny. The glimmers of light offered by the Christian tradition can become a steady beam that can enable us to find our way home, even in heavy seas.

Brian Grogan SJ is the author of the classic bestseller, Finding God in All Things and many other titles on Ignatian spirituality.
