Young adult book steps up for an award

Winner of the 2006 Australian Christian Book of the Year Award is Sheridan Voysey’s Unseen Footprints: encountering the divine along the journey of life.

Published by Scripture Union this book uses movies, social trends, pain, yearning, personal conversations and natural wonders, coax Australians into the complex search for meaning.

Voysey provides excellent examples from contemporary culture to provide a fresh and creative look at the intersections of the divine in daily life, and to present the faith in ways which connect with today’s Australians. The book explores our responses to situations of pain, fame, yearning and delight without descending to sentimentality or religiosity.

The design work in Unseen Footprints is by former Queensland Uniting Church staff person Nicole Gillan and the book was reviewed by Emma-Kate Moore for Journey last year HERE.

Sydney based author and speaker Michael Frost described Unseen Footprints as, "A thoroughly enjoyable meander through the varieties of ways that God touches us and draws us closer to himself.”
