Reviews

"An engaging meditation on the language of faith."--The New York Times Book Review

"It's hard to imagine less off-putting or pious writing about religion than this sublimely commonsensical lexicon of words and concepts that, as Kathleen Norris explains them, have rarely sounded less frightening--or quite so simple to understand."--Elle

"Definitely worthwhile reading... She combines an impressive understanding of theology with personal experience, making her essays read like letters from a highly literate friend."--People

"A unique and glorious voice."--Boston Globe

"[Kathleen Norris] writes about religion with the imagination of a poet."--Chicago Tribune

"One of the most eloquent yet earthbound spiritual writers of our time...frequently irreverent and funny... She makes us converts to her simple faith of warmth." --San Francisco Chronicle
