Summary

“When at seventeen I had become a medical student in Holland, my eye fell on a slim volume that carried in large yellow characters the title ZEN. This was in 1926, when Zen was still unknown in the West.

“Zen has been to me that which brings us into intimate contact with the world around us and, at the same time, with ourselves. This book, a revised edition of Echoes from the Bottomless Well,came to me at a moment of deep crisis.

“The quotations from the Zen writings and words of the great Zen masters, as well as some sayings from the Gospels, were not culled from printed pages. They welled up irresistibly from some eight decades of reflection and meditation from deep down, sometimes in words, sometimes at first in images, for I am by nature not a philosopher but an image-maker. The images that came so compellingly, witness to the experience of Zen as it affected my life.” — Frederick Franck

Pairing Frederick Franck’s unconventional calligraphic drawings with transformative words of wisdom from the Zen and Christian traditions, A Zen Book of Hours offers the seeds for many a heartfelt meditation on the innermost workings of life in and around ourselves.

Frederick Franck (1910–2006) was the author of over thirty books, including The Zen of Seeing and the award-winning Pacem in Terris: A Love Story, as well as an editor of What Does It Mean to Be Human?. He was honored with the World Citizenship Award by the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, and his sculpture and artwork are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Tokyo National Museum, and other public and private collections.
