"It's a mystery," we'll say. A common refrain we'll use to dismiss something we don't understand or find hard to explain.
Rather than dismiss such experiences, author William Breault prefers to listen to them, reflect on them, then draw us into them. And often in exploring such mysteries he finds a metaphor for the presence of God among us.
Writing with a remarkable combination of toughness and sweetness, spirituality and irreverence, he relates personal experiences in Where God Walks that convey a sense of the mystery that is at the heart of life. He explores and interprets personal events and encounters that fall outside the realm of cause and effect, events and encounters that move beyond the veil that prevents us from seeing deeper than our senses allow.
In so doing he appeals to our sense of wonder and our need to reflect rather than dismiss. He portrays moments of expansiveness-exchanges and interactions-that took him outside the normal human state of pre-occupation with self.
In Where God Walks readers will encounter an engaging personality who doesn't hesitate to reveal his own sensibilities and insecurities. In so doing he helps us to look at similar experiences in ways that might open us up to them. Ultimately he is telling us that God may not be knowable, but God can be experienced. And he helps show us how.
