Beauty: The Invisible Embrace (Rediscovering the True Sources of Compassion, Serenity, and Hope)

Beauty: The Invisible Embrace Beauty: The Invisible Embrace HarperCollins

John O'Donohue

HarperCollins, 2004

In another of his startlingly wise books, Celtic theologian O'Donohue explores all the aspects of beauty, delves into philosophers' thoughts on the subject, and considers questions we may not have even known we had.

Among them, O'Donohue asks and begins to examine not only how we understand the beauty of things and nature, but where beauty comes from, how we experience beauty through love, and God's hand in all of it.  It's written with his unique warmth and assurance which accompanies the reader into the most profound issues of life and death.

"A lively and informed discussion among great minds--a digest of provocative views on the inexhaustible and compelling topic.  This refreshing book falls like rain on the parched plain of contemporary discourse. " -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
