Format: Paperback
I stumbled on this gem while browsing at Forever Books, an independent bookstore in St. Joseph, Michigan. As a longtime fan of the short essay, I was immediately charmed by the author's poetic reflections on parenthood, art, and faith -- as well as his quest to find and express the beauty in ordinary moments. Reading these essays, I was often reminded of the adage, "The personal is universal." This is the perfect book to read on a quiet weekend, when you're looking for short, thoughtful pieces to digest, just a few at a time. I'd recommend it especially to busy young parents who are looking for thoughtful reading material -- but don't have a lot of free time.

I was also thrilled to find that the author has been inspired by many of my favorite writers -- May Sarton, Anne Lamott,Kathleen Norris (and many others) and weaves just the right quotations throughout his essays. Every parent, every writer, and every "seeker" needs a copy of this beautifully written, heartfelt book in his/her own library. -- Cindy La Ferle

Format: Paperback
"Steady and Trembling" has been described as calling to mind "both the narrative artistry of Annie Dillard and the theological ruminations of Kathleen Norris. In a lyrical voice, it explores questions of faith and life with rare emotional complexity: How does one learn to be creative rather than only productive, to search for meaning rather than marketability, to belong to nature rather than control it, to live in awe rather than on autopilot?

A lovely journal In the Walden tradition with observations of nature and analogies to life situations.
Beautifully written with wisdom and a light heart
