"Blending theology and memoir, Bessey's latest is a well-written reminder of seeing the miracles in life's highs and lows."-- "Library Journal"
"This book--the fullness, depth, and beauty of Sarah Bessey's faith and artistic genius--is a miracle. Sarah, a prophet who cries out with fury from the pulpit and who whispers tenderly from the page, is simply my favorite faith writer. With Miracles and Other Reasonable Things, she invites us to lives of wonder by opening our eyes to the ordinary, extraordinary miracles of our days."
--Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love Warrior and founder of Together Rising "Library Journal"
"Miracles and Other Reasonable Things will surprise and delight you. Sarah's writing is so breathtaking, sometimes you think you are reading poetry. The story is so thrilling, sometimes you think you are devouring a novel. And the Spirit she describes is so compelling, you'll swear you experienced a revival. You won't put it down once until you close the last page. We are so lucky to be readers in the era of Sarah Bessey."--Jen Hatmaker, New York Times bestselling author of For the Love and Of Mess of Moxie and host of the For the Love Podcast "Library Journal"
"Sarah Bessey is a writer of remarkable gifts. Beyond her ability to make a breath-taking sentence, and to tell the truth about the dying and rising of faith, she can tell a story as if she is whispering it straight into your heart. She is, by her own definition, a dangerous woman, with wisdom to spare about learning to love the broken miracles God offers us once we're honest about where it hurts."--Barbara Brown Taylor, author of Learning to Walk in the Dark "Library Journal"
"In Miracles and Other Reasonable Things, Sarah shows us how pain and loss can teach us to let go of what binds us in our faith stories while clinging to that which helps us survive--and ultimately thrive."--Mike McHargue, cofounder of The Liturgists and host of Ask Science Mike "Library Journal"
"Wise and funny, Sarah Bessey writes with hard-won hope that the space between healed and sick can be sacred ground. Thank God for Sarah, a faithful companion to those of us on the losing side of life."--Kate Bowler, New York Times bestselling author of Everything Happens For a Reason: And Other Lies I've Loved "Library Journal"
"Sarah Bessey, the self-described introvert, has given us all a witty and intimate personal reflection on faith and life that borders on liturgy. She walks the walk of an evolving faith, with power and vulnerability, guiding us through the common experience of listening to God's nudge (and painful jolt) so we can relearn God again and again, and in so doing witness our own process of unbecoming and rebecoming people of faith. Thank you, Sarah, for putting yourself out there!"--Pete Enns, author of How the Bible Actually Works "Library Journal"
"Sarah Bessey's Miracles and Other Reasonable Things is immediately one of my favorite books. I can't think of a single other work that brings together such raw, vulnerable pain with such a real sense of enchantment. Sarah is not too pious to tell us the truth about suffering, but not too cool to tell us the truth about the magic, either. In this trail-blazing, bush-burning book, anything can happen: the Pope shows up, and God does too . . . except of course, when God doesn't."--Jonathan Martin, author of How to Survive a Shipwreck and Prototype "Library Journal"
