'This is an unusually honest book. Its analysis is plain-spoken and compassionate, and what Bishop John has to say about finding ways to live constructively with times of emptiness is superbly well focused. You'll emerge from reading this with - probably - relief that a widespread set of challenges has been so sensitively identified and - certainly - with gratitude for sensible, durable advice on how to go on making friends with the mystery we can never digest or contain.' --Archbishop Rowan Williams
'Amid church scandals, destructive natural disasters and terrorist atrocities committed in the name of religion, it is not surprising that many have stopped believing in God, lost their faith and go through the physical motions like church-going but with no belief. Pritchard's book is a useful, practical guide for those seeking reconnection with the spiritual aspects of their daily lives.' --The Bookseller
What a courageous book! In his inimitable, engaging style, John Pritchard exposes the doubts, anxieties and spiritual dryness which can afflict even faithful believers. He shows us the darkest reality of being unable to find God. But he does not leave us there. His many stories and insights lift us gently to look again, experience afresh and be open to 'new beginnings'. The result is a deeply compassionate book - full of hope and full of God. --Elaine Storkey, Director of Education and Training, Church Army, President of Tearfund --Elaine Storkey, Director of Education and Training, Church Army, President of Tearfund

.. on a lighter scale and addressed to the wider audience with a variety of spiritual needs, this book makes for interesting, entertaining and worthwhile reading. It offers much practical and intelligent advice and succeeds pretty well in achieving its aim. It is both helpful and encouraging.
This is a sensible and immensely practical book, making but one stipulation - that of complete honesty with one's own self. This does, admittedly, take a bit of courage (but the gin should help with that!) which is well worth the effort. John Pritchard is one of the gentler Christian theologians I have encountered and coming originally from a very legalistic background, I had reasons aplenty to be fearful. This book makes a faith-based relationship with God easy to build. DON'T let anyone tell you it should be hard to be friends with God; I'm living proof that it isn't. I love Him and He loves me; Simples! Now, read this book and discover it for yourself.
