Deeper into the Mess: Praying through Tough Times


Brendan McManus SJ and Jim Deeds

This is the eagerly awaited follow up to the best selling, Finding God in the Mess.

In this new collection the authors address tough issues such as fear, anxiety, suicide and anger. They have received much feedback from workshops based on the first book, and these are some of the topics on which people have asked for help. As well as offering a meditation or a way of praying, the authors suggest scripture and a simple ritual.

Once again the book is based on Jim and Brendan’s own unique combination of practical prayer and Ignatian spirituality. Like the previous volume, this book is illustrated with their beautiful photographs.
