This is a revised and considerably enlarged edition of Touching the Rock. It is about one third again as long with two completely new chapters. Rather than concentrating upon the experience of loss of sight, it now tends to emphasise the features of the state of blindness. There are also some theological reflections which the author went on to develop later.
I met him at a conference and was acutely aware of the need to talk through things – milling around, people chat and then move on but a blind person cannot see the bodily cues people move as they move away so he is still talking to someone who is no longer there.
