Of all the books that I have read (some 80,000 titles), Touch of Wonder is the one that I love most (besides the Bible, of course). It inspires me, encourages me, affirms me, and carries me through difficulties in life. I have given many copies to friends and associates. This one will bring personal joy and amazement to friends as a gift item. I particularly like the chapter on the spiral ladder in Santa Fe and the midnight sky full of comets. Put it next to your pillow as a close friend.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Speak through me, Lord, if it be Your will," is a line from the opening prayer and I believe God answered it affirmatively.
Arthur Gordon's book is awesome!
Consider what he says about receiving from giving. He writes, "...people who give admiration and affection get them back--if what they give is spontaneous and sincere. People are irresistibly drawn to 'warm' people."
He describes an interview he had with Rudyard Kipling. The famous author told Gordon, "Do the things you really want to do if you possibly can. Don't wait for circumstances to be exactly right. You'll find they never are."
Mysteries are explored in this reflective collection. Intuition, the unsolved, and similar musings. Life is celebrated! We're told "there are two types of human beings: those who think of life as a privilege and those who think of it as a problem."
Consider this poignant observation he makes on purpose, "The worst that can happen to any creature is to be made incapable of doing the thing it was created to do."
Perhaps the most famous Arthur Gordon quote is included in this book. It's one I've heard Guidepost writer and editor Fred Bauer use: "Be bold--and mighty forces will come to your aid."
This is an awesome book. Its contents are powerful. I highly recommend it. The quality of your life will be enhanced as you become aware of the positive perceptions that exist beyond the sometimes cloudy temporal state of affairs.

I had to read this book for an Interpersonal Relations class in college. It is now one of my favorite books of all time. I read it everytime I feel down or need some inspiration. It is a wonderful book to give as a gift. I would recommend this book to everyone.

This is my favorite book of all time, and I have read HUNDREDS. I get this out and reread it at least once a year. It helps to inspire me and, sometimes, to get me through rough times. I have given this as a present to many people, and they have all thanked me profusely for it.

I first purchased this book back in the early 80's. I own several copies to share with friends. This book is definitely one of my very favorites. I re-read the stories particularly when I'm looking for a reason to appreciate life once again!

During the struggles of life, this book can offer comfort. It makes one look at life with a different perspective. We sometimes should stop and thank God for what we have! I think this book makes you do that in a wonderful way, a way that fills your spirit!!!
