Dipping into Life: 40 Reflections for a Fragile Faith


By Alan Hilliard

With a Foreword by Tony Bates

‘This book facilitates the reader as they ‘dip’ into life’s mysteries in a gentle and thought-provoking way. Dipping into Life is an accessible, uplifting and inspiring book.’  The Irish News

‘Alan Hilliard has perfected a format  he has previously and very successfully used for the liturgical seasons of Lent and Advent…40 incisive and sometimes profound reflections…colourful and attractive presentation…’   Intercom

‘An accessible book that invites readers to become more aware of the divine at work in the world and in their lives.’ – The Furrow

The loss, fear, isolation, and fragmentation of Covid-19 has caused many of us to pause and take stock of what really matters in our life. Dipping into Life comes at the perfect time to help us with this. Alongside Alan’s reflections are beautiful colour photographs taken and selected by the author himself to aid us in our prayer and meditation.
