Before there was light, God was. In fact, darkness is the medium God worked in to create the world, the universe, and all material things. Certainly, God lives in the warmth of sunlight and within our happiest days--but God also dwells in darkness. In Sacred Darkness, Paul Coutinho, SJ, examines how many Christians are fearful of dark times and struggles, yet it is often darkness that sheds light on our world and helps us live more effectively and more fully in the painful situations of our lives. Throughout the book, Coutinho shares powerful stories of how darkness can empower us--from a self-destructive alcoholic, to St. Ignatius, to the author himself. Ultimately, Sacred Darkness encourages us to overcome our "fear" or the dark by exploring the legitimate role of darkness on the spiritual journey. By learning to embrace darkness rather than run from it, we can experience God's love in ways and in places where we would least expect it.

The Christian believer routinely experiences periods in their life referred to as a dark night of the soul. In such times a person feels as if God has left him or her alone and God has distanced himself from the individual in this period of liminality. It is considered to be a time of trial and testing which only afterwards is viewed as a period of growth and maturing in Christ. In this book Daniel McGregor explores the Biblical foundation for this concept, as well as providing a historical survey of Christian theologians and authors who examine these themes and experiences. This volume will provide an ideal introduction to the subject for the serious layperson or a suitable reading for an introductory class in religious studies.

'A holy place...is a place that becomes a "gateway to heaven"', writes Chris Cook, 'a place in which we are aware of the presence of God.' These places may be geographical or architectural, or they may be metaphorical: places of loss, or achievement, or transition. This book explores prayer in holy spaces: physical places where we can go to be nearer to God. It is focused on one particular place - Durham Cathedral (voted the country's best-loved building) - but it is designed to enable the reader to explore prayer in other holy places also. It is a practical guide to prayer which takes into account different personality types as well as the physical environment, and uses all of these to help the reader to draw closer to God.
