The Mystery of Everything is a new and original Lent course by Hilary Brand, which takes the multi-award winning film about Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, as its starting point. The course explores ways in which the mysteries of the universe and of everyday life – and the acceptance that we have more questions than answers – can reinvigorate our faith and spiritual journey.
The course is based around five weekly group sessions entitled:
* The experience of wonder
* The enigma of weakness
* The complexity of relationships
* The encounter with frailty
* The hope beyond brokenness
Each session includes an extract from the film, group discussion questions and a meditation. There are also short introductory and follow up chapters for individual reading each week, and a chapter of Bible passages for further daily reading. The book supplies full notes for group course leaders.
Hilary Brand is a freelance writer with a particular gift for creating lively and innovative material that helps Christians engage more deeply with their faith. She is the author of four very popular Lent courses, Finding a Voice, Christ and the Chocolaterie, The Power of Small Choices and Not a Tame Lion (all DLT), as well as works of fiction for children and young teens and other non-fiction for adults.
