This Precious Life: Encountering the Divine with Poetry and Prayer (Paperback)

This Precious Life: Encountering the Divine with Poetry and Prayer By Alden Solovy Cover Image
Ships from Warehouse, Usually in 1-8 Days


In This Precious Life, liturgist Alden Solovy presents prayers, poetry, and meditations inspired by

encounters with God. The first part draws from divine moments in our sacred texts, mostly the

Torah but also the Prophets and the Writings. Using a contemporary voice, Solovy imagines these

holy moments as experienced by our biblical ancestors so we can reclaim them as our own. The

second part focuses on sacred moments in our daily lives, connections with the Divine that occur

simply because we are human beings created in God's image. Equally suited to individual reflection

and group prayer, the book completes a trilogy with This Grateful Heart and This Joyous Soul.
