Every year, author, teacher, and biblical authority F. LaGard Smith leaves his home in the United States to spend six months in the English countryside, in order to refresh his spirits in the peaceful surroundings. In Meeting God in Quiet Places, a companion to Smith's book of the same title, the writer takes viewers from his stone cottage on a ramble through the beautiful Cotswolds, a setting conductive to meditation. In a low-key, companionable manner, Smith uses the locale as a background for short reflections on God as a friend and protector, social responsibility, contentment, suffering, and forgiveness and grace. With its visual beauty, soothing music, and Smith's gentle presence, this is a refreshing tool for preparing the mind for personal reflection or sharing thoughts with others. Recommended.
