Nature Contemplations Through the Christian Year

Peter Skaller


List Price: 14.95*
* Individual store prices may vary.


This little book is a treasure trove of reflections and contemplations on images from nature, each one connected to a gospel reading.

Based on thirty years of sermons, Skaller explores the essence of sensory images such as flowers, shells, clouds and landscapes, going deeper to help us understand them as divine manifestations in our everyday world. They in turn enable us to come to insights, feelings and intuitions about the purpose of the world, and of ourselves.

Presented in a beautiful gift hardback edition, this is a book of reverence and wonder, in which we can glimpse the reality of the divine.
