In Lost in Wonder, Esther de Waal uses the everyday circumstances of our livesthe restrictions and frustrations as well as the gifts and opportunitiesas our own way to God. By teaching us how to be attentive to all the seemingly small and insignificant things, she shows how they become windows through which the light of Christ can shine to dispel darkness, illuminate our understanding, and speak to our deepest needs. As we recover the gift of childlike wonder we begin to see that spiritual fruitfulness does not depend on our anxious performance, but is a gift we may receive freely. Quotations from the Psalms and spiritual writers at the end of each chapter encourage prayerful reflection. Chapters are: “Seeing With the Inner Eye,” Silence, Change, Tears, Mystery, Gift, and Epilogue.
