Publisher’s Description: 

From the bestselling author of God Stories, this mysterious and faith-inspiring (Publishers Weekly) book shares the uplifting stories of people who have encountered the divine through their dogs.

The Divinity of Dogs is about the moment that a dog taught you something profound about life. Featuring more than seventy true stories culled from hundreds of submissions to the authors website, this inspiring, heartwarming book shows how the love, tolerance, comfort, compassion, loyalty, joyfulness, and even death we experience through dogs can lead to spiritual enlightenment.

In anecdotes both grounded and otherworldly, Jennifer Skiff interweaves dozens of inspiring and delightful examples of ways that dogs have profoundly touched the lives of those around them. Youll meet Little Bit, the rescued Chihuahua who detected a small lump in her owners breast (when even a doctor couldnt feel it); Luna, the Retriever who pulled her owner to safety after she collapsed on the street; and Skye, the lovable Rough Haired Terrier whose behavior suggested that her owners husband was trying to communicate with her from beyond the grave. Skiff also describes her own experiences with dogs throughout the book, showing how they have comforted her through a cancer diagnosis, a divorce, and traumatic stress on the job.

Together, the stories that make up The Divinity of Dogs provide hope, help, and healing for millions of dog lovers everywhere.
