A Rumour of God explores a variety of routine experiences - home, place, solitude, wonder, walking, and ""everyday epiphanies"" - to show us the possibility of restoring the spiritual side of our lives.
In an accessible yet thoughtful way, Robert Sibley recounts ""moments of being"" - his and others - that demonstrate how individuals might better respond emotionally and intellectually to the soul-sapping incoherence and disenchantment of the post-modern world. Drawing on the experiences of philosophers and theologians, writers and artists, explores and spiritual adepts, he finds a source of ideas and practices - everything from meditation and monastic retreat to a Sunday walk or an afternoon in the back yard - that can restore a sense of equilibrium to our lives. Just as C.S. Lewis once said we acquire faith by acting as believes, Sibley argues that we re-enchant the world by ""paying attention"" to our daily experiences.
