Review

D. H. Lawrence once called wonder our sixth sense, a natural religious sense. Anderson's tutorial on this spiritual practice is refreshing. --Spirituality & Health Magazine (Voted one of The Best Spiritual Books by Spirituality and Health Magazine) ."This is a delightful book, wise without being precious; entertaining without being trivial . . . Readers of almost any persuasion should enjoy Anderson's affable company." --June Sawyers, Booklist

"I wish David Anderson had written Breakfast Epiphanies twenty years ago. Reading it then would have made me a better person, parent, and pastor. In any event, I'm glad it's here now. And I bet you will be too." --Philip Gulley, author of Front Porch Tales

"I have long believed that the mark of a great personal essay is not so much that we see the writer but that we see what the writer sees. David Anderson has shown me what he sees, and his willingness to do so has granted me a more vivid glimpse of what I see myself." --Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, author of The Sewing Room and Finding Time for Serenity
