Embracing a Beautiful God: Tenth Anniversary Edition

I can’t believe it’s been TEN years!  Where did the time go?  The Tenth Anniversary Edition of Embracing a Beautiful God, a book of devotional essays, is now available in paperback and kindle.   See below for a full description.

You can read one of the essays now–one of my favorites– called “Van Gogh’s God”  along with images of his works . . .

As an essayist, beauty continues to be my favorite theme. If you love the arts–especially classical music– you might also like my latest JJB article:  “The Whole Planet in a Single Note: Lang Lang.”   The editor of JJB is working to get it translated into Chinese.

Blessings and Peace,



BOOK DESCRIPTION:  Within these fifty-two short, imaginative, and often humorous essays lies a lively “spirituality of Beauty” from the tradition of process theology. A book to be read aloud or savored as a daily meditation, it will appeal to readers from a variety of spiritual traditions. This Tenth Anniversary Edition includes a new preface by the author.


“Patricia Farmer offers us her luminescent meditations like a beautiful string of pearls. When we’ve absorbed them, we see the world differently.” — Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People.


“This is one of those rare books that is what it is about: Beauty.–Professor Marjorie Suchocki, author of In God’s Presence


“It has the earmarks of a spiritual classic.” — Professor Jay McDaniel, author of Living from the Center
