Glimpses of Glory by David Bryant
The Mowbray Lent Book 2017
Looking back on his life after a diagnosis of terminal cancer, David Bryant reflects on the moments in which he encountered the grace of God, often in the most unlikely places: in a high-security prison; at the bedside of a dying child; in a hospital ward, facing his own mortality.
In 40 daily reflections that are at once deeply personal and revealing, Bryant draws widely on poetry, literature, art, music, and above all human encounter to trace a divine thread running through his life, one that he describes as ‘always unpredictable and often surprising’.
David Bryant was a priest and regular contributor to the Church Times and the Guardian. He died in 2016, shortly after completing this book.
