About-

What does a clock or calendar, a map, a newspaper or bandage, a set of measuring cups or a basket have to do with prayer? Kathleen Finley not only tells about how to pray with all our senses, but also shows us how, using Scripture as well as factual information about a wide variety of everyday objects, to help us take seriously how everything has the potential to be holy in light of Jesus' incarnation.

If folding your hands and closing your eyes doesn't always work for you as a posture of prayer, this excursion into new possibilities for prayer may be for you.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This is incarnational Christianity and embodied prayer as it was meant to be. For some reason it is the specific, the concrete, the immediate, and the now that lead us to experience the eternal. In this 'prayer book' we have a fine guide and fine guidance."
--Richard Rohr, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

"Kathleen Finley uncovers the potential for prayer through objects. Ordinary combs and keys, seeds and shoes, take on a new luster in this light. With specific directions and relevant Scripture passages, what more do you need? Try it!"
--Kathy Coffey, Hidden Women of the Gospels

"Kathleen Finley takes very seriously the presence of God in creatures and God's manifestation through the senses. In this wondrous book she prescribes concrete exercises to bring us closer to the God who lurks everywhere."
--Andrew Greeley, The Cardinal Virtues

"Kathleen Finley shows that we needn't look far to find entry points to connect with God. With imagination and lively faith, Finley guides us to a fresh yet ancient way to pray."
--Tom McGrath, Raising Faith-Filled Kids: Ordinary Opportunities to Nurture Spirituality at Home
