"If you like your spirituality books laced equally with wisdom, memoir, and snarky humor . . .If you have enjoyed authors like Nadia Bolz-Weber, Rachel Held Evans, and Peter Enns . . .Then let me commend to you Alice Connor's How to Human: An Incomplete Manual for Living in a Messed-up World. It's a smart and playful take on theological adulting, basically." --Jana Riess, Religion News Service

"We need Alice Connor's calm, vulnerable wisdom to help us cross the deep chasms that are tearing our world apart--to learn to be curious about those we disagree with, to take them seriously, to listen intently." --Debbie Blue, author of Consider the Women, Consider the Birds, and Sensual Orthodoxy

"Connor's provocative recipe book for life is relevant to anyone trying to figure out how to be a human being who makes mistakes but is still abundantly loved and transformed by our experiences together." --Aaron Billard, Unvirtuous Abbey

"How to Human challenges us to address the uncomfortable dimensions of our life. The payoff is well worth it." --Seamus Carey, president, Transylvania University

"How to Human is a true gift to anyone wise enough to take in the goodness poured out on these pages." --Bart Campolo, humanist chaplain at the University of Cincinnati and host of the Humanize Me podcast
