Overview

In this intimate diary of prayerful letters to his premature granddaughter, best-selling author Max De Pree offers a moving portrait of spiritual strength and the power of family.
Former CEO and current chairman of the board of Herman Miller, Inc., Max De Pree has been lauded by Forbes, Fortune, and The Wall Street Journal as one of the most sensitive and successful executives in business. Through Dear Zoe, he shares a poignant and wonderfully redemptive personal story.
De Pree's granddaughter was born perilously premature and weighed only one pound, seven ounces-De Pree could "hide [her] entire body under one hand." Though her chances of surviving were a mere 5 to 10 percent, her mother bravely named her Zoe, the Greek word for life. De Pree's journal-like letters candidly chronicle these terrifying early days, revealing the intimate process of a family pulling together while asking "Why?" and reflecting on the mysterious mingling of medicine and faith that sustained both Zoe and her family through each precarious day.

Editorial Reviews

CBA Bookstore Journal
"This book will make a wonderful gift for families struggling with a loved one's "imperfection" or uncertain future. Readers will be comforted."
Christianity Today
Occasionally a book comes along that is a gift to the spirit. This is such a book. . . . These are letters of wonder—wonder at how life, when it seems most secure, is unspeakably fragile, and how when it is most precarious, it is yet unspeakably good.
Robert Schuller
A poignant and moving story.
