About-

Usually when we pray we try to shut out the outside world and focus on the interior, the spiritual, in order to be able to be with God. Instead, this book invites us to be with God through the very tangible, specific objects of our everyday life. We're invited to take another look--as well as another listen, taste, touch, and smell--at what is right before us and see God there. A rock, a shoe, a pen--all offer an opportunity for entering into prayer and experiencing God's presence.

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, OFM



"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



"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



"Kathleen Finley shows that we needn't look far to find entry points to connect with God. With imagination, wit, and lively faith, Finley guides us to a fresh yet ancient way to pray."

- Tom McGrath
