Overview

"We each have those moments when we catch glimpses of the mysteries of God -- the holy clues that God leaves all around us -- if we are but willing to recognize them," writes Caroline A Westerhoff. A gifted storyteller, Westerhoff uses her talents to create an inspirational collection of essays that will encourage meditation and prayer while enticing readers to view their own everyday worlds in a new light, "anticipating peeks into heaven and brushes up against God." This unique, thought-provokign work commences and concludes with an appropriate selection from the Book of Psalms and is supported by the author's personal observations and parallel biblical reflections. Study questions for fostering both individual and group discussions are included, making this book an extremely valuable meditative resource, especially during the seasons of Lent and Advent. In the foreward, the author's husband, the Reverend Dr. John H. Westerhoff, writes: "Through poignant, revelatory stories in the Wisdom Tradition, she helps us experience and understand the mysteries of God as a continuing process of unveilings -- through nature, the arts, and our human lives ... Caroline encourages us to use the intuitive dimension of our lives and to engage our imagination."
