Publishers Description Foreword by Eugene H. Peterson One of the most widely read and highly acclaimed religious books over the past twenty-five years, God of Surprises takes readers on a spiritual journey of discovery and change. Jesus said, The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field. This book aims to suggest ways of finding that treasure in what we may consider a most unlikely field - ourselves. God of Surprises has much to say to those who have a love-hate relationship with the church to which they are connected. This edition contains a new preface by Gerard Hughes in which he shares how he came to write the book, what it has meant to him personally, and his hopes for it in the future.
