This excellent resource for daily meditation has the distinct advantage of being composed of excerpts chosen from one of the most graceful and profound writers working today. Compiler Chase, with the author's assistance, has chosen superbly from L'Engle's rich repository of nonfiction, fiction and poetry. Selections from each genre, while presented as daily readings, flow well, moving smoothly from one day's reading into the next. Fiction passages are inherently more difficult to render in stand-alone format, but here, with Chase's introductions, they are as effective in most instances as are the other selections. Chase has also provided an index by title and topic, a complete bibliography of L'Engle's works and a source index for those readers who wish to explore L'Engle's writings more fully.
