The Harrington Spear Paine Professor of Religion at Princeton University, Pagels was awarded the Rockefeller, Guggenheim, and MacArthur Fellowships in three consecutive years. She is the author of The Gnostic Gospels, Beyond Belief, and Revelations.
An extraordinary memoir of loss, spiritual struggle, illumination and insight-emotionally heartrending, intellectually exciting, a model of what a memoir should be.-- "Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times bestselling author"
Pagels treats readers to the examined life behind her intellectual feats with extreme grace and depth. This luminous memoir strips religion to its elementary particles: love, suffering, and mystery.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
