Early Praise

“Finding God Abiding reads like a conversation with that wise and trusted friend who is engaged in the same questions and quandaries we all are: Who am I—really? How can I make sense of my life? Where is God in all this mess? Through anecdotes told simply and wisely, with Scriptural wisdom, guiding questions, and a generous dash of humor tossed in, Christine Eberle invites us into her life of faith and helps us to find “the one Companion of our endless life” in our own stories.”

—Brother Chris Derby, SJ, Provincial Assistant for Spirituality Ministries, Jesuits USA East

“Like a four-movement Mozart symphony that arrests attention, prompts reflection, provokes a smile, and elicits tears of joy as the music makes its way into our souls, Finding God Abiding is a masterful, heartwarming collection of brief daily meditations which, stitched together like a beautiful tapestry, portrays the ways in which a God who actually abides with us can be perceived, embraced, trusted, known. Eberle has given us a book that I will return to time and time again, just as I do the Mozart symphonies of long ago.

—Jeff Crosby, editor and compiler, “Days of Grace Through the Year”
