I hope these words are still sparrow-song, more ragged at the edges, perhaps, but filled with gratitude. This new Song of the Sparrow tries to sing on like an aging bird whose voice is less insistent, less knowing, a bit intermittent, but still reaching for a full-throated song. ?From the Introduction

Thirty years after his groundbreaking and popular Song of the Sparrow, Murray Bodo revisits this prayer journal. With new insights and a seasoned perspective, he highlights the spiritual path for those new to it and those who, like him, are always rediscovering it. His musings, meditations and messages are a font of inspiration for those seeking new ways to pray.
