Overview

You may not usually see yourself as God's artwork. This book invites you to explore that possibility. It may seem like a stretch, but if you can see God as the principle architect of your life, it adds a marvelous dimension to your faith.

To see the sacred, to see God's presence, to see the holy in what is otherwise ordinary around us-this is to see with the eyes of faith. Kathy Coffey believes that we discover "the art of faith" in precisely this way. Here she invites readers to see their own lives as unique and priceless works of art. In forty brief chapters she reflects on the art of faith through the lens of various other arts, such as painting, writing, gardening, weaving, storytelling, yoga, cooking, poetry, and dancing. Each reflection is accompanied by inspiring quotes for further pondering, as well as insightful questions for reflection and discussion. This is a beautiful book, one that soars into the spiritual realm of God's own life-a place where it is highly believable that each of us is a beautiful and unique work of art.
