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

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

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

“This is a wise and useful little book.”

Peter Snow, New View
