“D” is for “Delightful”—the perfect word to describe this unique collection of meditations based on the practice of praying the alphabet. In each chapter you’ll focus on one letter, first naming an everyday object, then associating it with a theological theme that begins with the same letter. It’s a timeless spiritual exercise that will spark your imagination and draw your attention to what matters most while offering momentum for your journey of prayer. And the beauty of the illuminated manuscripts and the woodcuts of contemporary alphabet books make this an enchanting visual experience as well.
“Praying the alphabet allows us to be thorough in our prayers because each letter conjures up something we might not otherwise have remembered: mercy, melons. Suddenly, we can taste both.”
