Alphabet Of Grace - Frederick Buechner

This is the kind of book you want to simply soak in.

It is classic Buechner who, as I understand it, created this book from a series of lectures he gave which inspired him to explore different forms of writing.

One of the many good quotes:
"Prince Oblonsky, newly awake and sitting on the edge of the sofa in his study, asks "What's to be done?" And the answer that life gives is: live in the needs of the day. What's to be done? Do what you need most to do this day and what is most needed of you. Where your feet take you today is who you are. Guide thou my feet. O Thou invisible, manifest thyself, clack-clack, in this visible day."

First half better than the second.
