Item Description...
Thomas Howard insists that every room of your house the living room, the kitchen, the bedroom, and even the bathroom is a holy place where God's grace awaits you, if only you know how to recognize His presence there. With a rich appreciation for the glories of God's all-encompassing love, Howard shows you how to find Him in Splendor in the Ordinary. This beautifully written book takes you on a tour through your own home. In each room, Howard shows you the surprising ways you can meet God there. (He starts with the door and the walls!) With fervent devotion, his meditations encompass the experience of ancient Israel, who met God in terror and smoke and fire in the Tabernacle, and the sacrifice of Christ, which sanctifies the whole world. But they're by no means confined to a lofty spiritual plane: Howard sees chances to love and serve God, and sees His gentle hand, in the most seemingly dull and ordinary of places and actions. So take up this book to find out how cooking and cleaning, having family dinners together, and all the other commonplace actions that make up the fabric of your daily life can actually disclose God's presence to you. Your daily life as well as your devotional life will be forever transformed by this unusual look at how lovingly God awaits us even in the smallest things.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The most important book I read on my journey to Orthodoxy  Oct 10, 2003
My greater conversion was not to Eastern Orthodoxy but to sacramentalism, which can be defined as the physical means God uses to convey His Grace or unmerited favor. I was raised Protestant, which is sacramental in some respects, and sacramentarian (against a sacramental view of life and creation) in other respects; in other words, an inconsistent sacramentalism. Howard's book would best be subtitled "Sacramentalism in Everyday Life". He systematically goes through each room in a home, starting with the doorway, and ending in the bedroom. He shows how each room incarnates the sacramental principle at the heart of the universe: My Life for yours. Example: in the kitchen, he shows how Rice Krispies daily give up their life so that one can derive life from them. I read this book in an earlier edition, before Howard became Roman Catholic. Since then, he has revised many of his earlier books to make them more tendentiously Roman Catholic. As a result, what were some of the best ecumenical extended essays have partly become somewhat screechy Roman Catholic tracts. Despite those drawbacks, there is no other book I'm aware of that does what this book does. Highly recommended. (Also published under the title Hallowed Be This House.)
