"A jewel box of comfort and ecstasy, reverence and wisdom. Powerful testimony to the different ways that animals inspire us to worship our Creator." -Sy Montgomery, author of The Wild Out Your Window "A threshold to a deeper understanding of God.... Allows us to experience the relationships God has created between creatures in this Sacred Circle of life." -Rt. Rev. Mark MacDonald, Episcopal bishop of Alaska "Delightful ... lovely ... timeless.... A book that pet lovers will treasure." -Diana L. Guerrero, author of What Animals Can Teach Us about Spirituality; founder of Ark Animals "Gives voice to the unspoken yet eloquent expressions of prayer and praise offered daily in the Animal Kingdom. The sights and sounds of the poetic imagery linger long after we close this book." -Nancy Sohn Swartz, author of In Our Image: God's First Creatures and How Did the Animals Help God?
