Item description for Seeing God in the Ordinary: A Theology of the Everyday by Michael Frost...
Overview Recipient of the 1999 Christian Book of the Year award in Australia, Seeing God in the Ordinary is an appeal to recover the place of the imagination in the Christian life, to rediscover the use of metaphor in a prose-flattened world, to see God in the ordinary. By a careful examination of film, literature, and other aspects of contemporary culture_as well as the Gospels_the author argues for a robust faith that embraces human experience in all its forms, that is open to the intuitive, and that has the capacity to fill us with wonder and astonishment.

another great book from Mike Frost Sep 1, 2006
I love everything Mike Frost writes, and this is no exception. Frost does a great job of encouraging his readers to find God in the everyday joys of life.
This is a short book, great for a quick and enjoyable encouragement.
Outside of the Box. May 23, 2003
Too often in the modern Church, there is a message preached about the differences between the "secular" and the "spiritual" that verges on Gnosticism. This should not be. God is bigger than we can ever imagine and too often we miss out on seeing God because He doesn't fit the little boxes we've built for Him.
SEEING GOD IN THE ORDINARY is a book that attempts to correct the fallacy of the semi-dualism being preached in many churches today. It is a book that illustrates just how big God really is and that the God who performed so many marvelous deeds in the Bible, is alive and well today working in and through the "common" and "mundane" things of life. Life truly is beautiful if we would only open our eyes and see.
