Bringing to life the glamour and squalor of the 1900s, O. Henry's unmistakable tales are by turns hilarious or tragic, but always deeply poignant.

"Wonder, attention, journey, stillness Tracy Balzer's book explores the very lineaments of the spiritual life. In reflecting on these themes, Balzer draws, of course, on Scripture, but also on wildlife, poetry, art, and the text of her own ordinary and extraordinary life as a minister, mother, wife, friend, and disciple of Jesus Christ. But this is not just a book about wonder and attentiveness. It is a book that cultivates wonder and attentiveness I found myself becoming calmer, more peaceful, and more prayerful as I read. I am so thankful for A Listening Life. Quite simply, it is a book that I need." Lauren Winner, Author of Girl Meets God and Mudhouse Sabbath
