Peter Hannan believes that many people today are looking for a new faith-vision which will give meaning and direction to their lives, and that this vision can be achieved - providing they are prepared to work at it and to persevere. Some of the major obstacles to our accepting and responding to the unconditional love of God come from our own inherited false images of both God and of ourselves. By acknowledging and examining his own experiences, and by reflecting on them in the light of the gospels, Hannan seeks to lead other pilgrims on a journey of faith towards intimacy and union with the God who, as St John tells us, is love.
Fr. Hannan says, at the beginning of this book: "Over twenty-five years of reading the Bible every day, I became fascinated by the range of aspects of the love of God which I found presented there...Some time later I became interested in the Enneagram which holds that we are made in God's image, and that each one of us reflects one of nine aspects or 'faces' of God ... These nine faces correspond in a very enlightening way with the images I found in the Bible."
Peter Hannan is a Jesuit who has spent twelve years as a teacher in Africa and now works as a spiritual director. His life-long interests have been religious education and spiritual direction, as ways of helping people to lead fuller and happier lives.
