About-

Among the ambiguities, superficialities, uncertainties, and temporality of a contemporary day-to-day, rush-here, rush-there world, Mann beams a revelatory light on the ordinary things--bathing the baby or visiting an elderly day care center--and makes them glow with significance. It is a special gift to be able to uncover the spirituality in the familiar, to disclose the sacred in the ordinary, and the author effortlessly uncovers the epiphanies that wait patiently in the everyday for discovery.

The reality of faith is at the core of these meditational explorations. To Taste and See not only illustrates how to think theologically about the ordinary events of life--it is a gentle challenge to do so. Mann draws his insights and inspirations from a variety of sources: the Bible, contemporary literature, swamp frogs, the life of the congregation, scholarly studies--all made accessible in a lively, informal, thought-provoking style. The riches of wisdom and the abundance of what it means to be Christian surround us. All we must do to partake of these gifts is to "taste and see."
