This book of meditations by father-and-son team of Martin and Micah Marty reflects on the spiritual dimension of the gift of simplicity. Martin Marty, professor of modern Christianity at the University of Chicago, provides the devotional commentary for Micah Marty's stark black-and-white photographs. The elder Marty notes, ""the gift of simplicity is there for the opening, the way we open books."" According to Marty, the gift of simplicity purifies, and this purification occurs when prayers are said and answered, and when those who pray rise again to explore the fullness of life. Martin Marty provides insightful and thought-provoking devotions for those serious about discovering the spiritual meaning of simplicity, and Micah's photos of various rooms in a variety of locations draw the reader into a search for simplicity in the midst of a life's business.
