Holy Stuff of Life | Stories, Poems and Prayers about Human Things (Murray Elkins)


Holy Stuff of Life: Stories, Poems, and Prayers about Human Things is a book about "stuff." We are stuff. What really makes us what and whose we are? Heather Murray Elkins explores the human, yet holy, connections of things such as: apple seeds, a tattoo, dishtowels, a broken chalice, and extra-virgin cooking oil blessed by the pope. You will be moved from wanting to consume more to seeing the holy in the stuff around you.


Heather Murray Elkins is a professor of worship and preaching at Drew University Theological School in Madison, New Jersey. She is the co-editor of Wising Up: Ritual Resources for Women of Faith in Their Journey of Aging (The Pilgrim Press, 2005).
