Product Description

In Hebrew acrostics, such as Psalm 119, praying the alphabet was an aid to memorization and piety. Hickman selects one everyday object for each letter of the alphabet, enjoining us to encounter the word made concrete and then to articulate its significance for our lives. An unusual, mind-stretching exercise. 144 pages, softcover. Abingdon.
