Overview

With over thirty books and cumulative sales of over 750,000 copies, renowned spiritual guide Edward Hays presents 366 "daily wonderments" designed to stir the imaginations of readers and help them find delight in the ordinary.

Does it sometimes seem that the wisdom of the ages is aged?

The Templeton Foundation recently awarded the University of Chicago nearly three million dollars to orchestrate research that answers this question: is there a new viewing of wisdom for the twenty-first century, or is there really nothing new under the sun?

Pulling from an eclectic array of "sage instructors," best-selling author Edward Hays articulates 366 daily wonderments through such sources as Sherlock Holmes, Taoist teachers, and Mickey Mouse. Unique and poignant in equal amounts, this book of daily reflections is Ed Hays unplugged and spurs us to find delight and wonder in the ordinary.
