"In his words, to be a Jew mens opening one's eyes to the many beautiful and mysterious things that happen every day. In such simple acts as waking to see the morning light, tasting food and feeling strong, learning and growing wiser, and helping others, Kushner teaches us to view life and all its aspects as holy, emanating from ta a divine source that connects us all."

The book has 4 sections: Seeing, Hearing, Doing, and Person. Each section highlights the ways a person can become more in tune with God and His creation.
