Reviews

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.
