Winner, author of StillI may just be a bit smitten with this book. — Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand GiftsWhat a delight, to find so extraordinary a collection. — Kathleen Norris, author of Dakota and Cloister WalkA thing of beauty! — the late Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine HoursA creative re-envisioning of the traditional devotional. — IMAGE JournalOnce again, Sarah Arthur has provided rich and enriching resources for the recovery of a life of prayer. More difficult, perhaps, than any other truth we may glimpse in the midst of what we know as ‘the time being, is the efficacy of penitential prayer- most elusive is the bright sorrow that couples our repentance with joy. With this book, many will find their way to this inestimable blessing. — Scott Cairns, Author of Slow Pilgrim: The Collected PoemsOther Literary Guides by Sarah Arthur: At the Still Point: A Literary Guide to Prayer in Ordinary Time, and Light Upon Light: A Literary Guide to Prayer for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany
