"Ask the animals" Job says, "and they will teach you; the birds of the air and they will tell you . . . who among you does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?"

From the humpback whale, who offers a glimpse into God?s mystery, to the elephant, who models God?s fiercely protective love and compassion, to the blackbird, who opens our eyes to the song of joy that sings through the cosmos, the animal kingdom is a treasure trove of images of our Creator.

In this beautifully illustrated collection of essays, readers will find surprising connections and much food for thought. Ask the Animals is a wonderful resource for private devotion or group study.

Elizabeth Canham, an Episcopal priest and native of England, is the author of Heart Whispers and Journaling with Jeremiah. She is director of the Hospites Mundi spirituality center in North Carolina.
