Taste and See

Experiencing the Goodness of God with Our Five Senses

$9.95

Most Catholics are quite comfortable with the idea of encountering God with hearts and minds. Using the heart or brain to "sense" God's presence doesn't feel like a stretch. But the notion of finding God with our five senses—sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste—could seem strange indeed. In fact, it might even seem worldly or downright wrong.

In Taste and See, Ginny Kubitz Moyer beautifully counters this common misunderstanding. Using personal stories, anecdotes, and Scripture, she demonstrates how the five senses are a powerful, biblically based means for us to encounter God, not only as we practice our faith but also as we participate in the "messy splendor" of daily life.

Each sense is allotted five chapters, each of which highlights a different experience of that sense. Every chapter concludes with Ignatian Examen-inspired prayer steps that encourage us to recognize and reflect upon God's presence and goodness in the physical world.

From roses to the rosary, from candle smoke to Communion wine, Taste and See helps readers truly find God in all things—from the mundane to the sublime.
