Book Overview
With characteristic eloquence and insight, award-winning author Frederick Buechner presents a three-part series of reflections that probe the innermost mysteries of life against the backdrop of one day. Buechner blends an artist's eye for natural beauty with a wealth of personal, literary, biblical, and spiritual insights. Exploring the true meaning of human encounters and events (momentous or otherwise), he offers a matchless opportunity for readers to discover the hidden wisdom that can be gleaned through a heightened experience of daily life. Frederick Buechner is the award-winning author of more than thirty works of fiction and nonfiction, including the New York Times bestseller A Long Day's Dying, the Pulitzer prize-nominated Godric, and Wishful Thinking, Telling the Truth, The Eyes of the Heart, On the Road with the Archangel, and The Storm. He has been honored by the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Frederick Buechner surprises and delights (and - very softly - teaches) us by giving some shape to apparently random experience by uttering it ... He has articulated what he sees with a freshness and clarity and energy that hails our stultified imaginations.-The New York Times Book Review
