Seeing Yourself In Other People
By David Adam
Out of Stock
In Mirror Images, David Adam reflects on human encounters - on how we meet others in their otherness and through them the great 'Other' who is God. Characters in the book include the bird-watcher who has a greater sense of wonder and awe than many who call themselves Christian; the 'Snow White' woman who is fading away for lack of love; the man who needs to drink and cannot live easily without doing so, and the fan who is almost possessed by the team he supports. Each chapter ends with a look at a biblical character (Abraham, Jacob, David and Isaiah are among those featured), who has something to teach us about ourselves and our inner make-up. We will then be able to reflect further on our own way of living and how other people may see us. "If we are fortunate enough we will meet at least one person with whom we can truly share our love. Then the love that is poured into our lives can be released and poured out towards others. For the strange thing about love is the more you give it away the more it grows. Love turns us away from ourselves and helps us to look outward and beyond the confines of our own space." From 'Love Changes Everything'

Press Reviews

Another reflective book from David Adam who always manages to throw fresh light on our lives. With stories about people he has met in widely differing circumstances, he encourages us to read and absorb Bible stories and relate them to our own lives with prayer and contemplation. A must for David Adam fans, and a joy for those who have not read his work before.

- Mary Bartholomew

"David Adam's work is always a welcome escape into a mysterious world of Celtic spirituality, offering gentle reflection and meditation. His latest volume does not fail to deliver."
