Following on from the best selling book, Finding God in the Mess, Brendan McManus and and Jim Deeds have once again teamed up with Messenger Publications for the new book, Deeper into the Mess- Praying Through Tough Times.
Using a mix of storytelling, photography and personal experiences they lead the reader though meditations on the tough situations we can all find ourselves in.
Each of the main meditations in the book is divided into four sections:
1. INTRODUCTION OR DESCRIPTION OF THE SITUATION
2. THE WAY OF PRAYING FOR THAT SITUATION
3. RELEVANT SCRIPTURE TEXTS
4. A SUGGESTED RITUAL OR ACTION TO EMBODY THE PRAYER
5. Each section is preceded by a short ‘Conversation with God’ that models how we might relate to God directly, praying with every aspect of our lives and bringing God’s light into the darkest corners.
The book will be available from 29th April at www.messenger.ie
