Ranging freely throughout L'Engle's remarkable lifework of more than 40 volumes of fiction and nonfiction, adventure stories, family dramas, autobiography and religious commentary, editor Carole P. Chase has collected evocative passages and arranged them as daily readings that offer illuminating bits of wisdom, provocative insight, and, above all, engaging and intelligent daily inspiration. With enduring power and resonance, each of these 366 rich selections speaks to the simple joys and sorrows of daily life and the deepest questions of the human heart and spirit, while reflecting the exhilarating artistry of one of the most spiritually alive and articulate storytellers of this century.
Jan Palmer5 Stars Out Of 5February 26, 2009Jan PalmerThis compilation of vignettes from the works of Madeleine L'Engle is lyrical, poignant and profound in its examination of one woman's journey of faith. It is the type of book that will become a treasured and deeply personal volume as it explores the spiritual reality of the human experience. Designed to be read daily through the calendar year, it covers a wide range of topics - from doubt to death to unbridled awe for our Creator - each insight is masterfully wrought and deeply moving. I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys simple elegance in meditative form.
