“Where is God?” “Is God real?” These have been the cries of humankind since time began. Searching for the answer involves exploring what is profoundly human, which is to be found in the figure of Christ. That is why we cannot think of God without turning our minds to Jesus. Enzo Bianchihelps us finds God in stories from the Old Testament; stories of Abraham, Jacob, and Moses. It is the divine within us who really poses the question, “God, where are you?,” When we truly begin to search for God, we discover that not only is God real, but He is already looking for us!
Enzo Bianchi founded the ecumenical monastic BoseCommunity in Italy in 1965 in the fervor of renewal of the Second Vatican Council. He is still the Community’s prior. He is also the author of Echoes of the Word.
”[In] this remarkable little volume . . . Enzo Bianchi’s meditation on the Elijah story is absolutely captivating . . . God, Where Are You? is the work of a Christian who loves the Old Testament and demonstrates how it can speak to us today. It should be read very slowly and reflectively, and would make excellent Lenten reading.”
—Nicholas King SJ, The Tablet
”Enzo Bianchi is one of themost significant Christian voices in Europe . . . His is a perspective that the English-speaking Christian world should welcome enthusiastically.”
—Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge
