"Toni Morrison's Spiritual Vision is the seminal text for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of an underappreciated yet central part of Morrison's life and literature: her Catholic faith." --Ekemini Uwan, public theologian and cohost of Truth's Table podcast

"This book is a must-have for fans who want a deeper dive into what made the late writer's stories so compellingly magical." --Del Sandeen, author of Maya Angelou: Writer and Activist

"Integrating disciplines and genres, this suggestive work will garner a wide readership. Morrison fans will cheer its journalistic eloquence, archival analysis, and provocative payoffs and, most of all, its unfolding revelations of a Nobel laureate in the making." --Gregory S. Jackson, Rutgers University, author of The Word and Its Witness: The Spiritualization of American Realism

"Nittle has written just the book we need: an engaging and thorough consideration of Toni Morrison's religious vision. For too long Morrison's significant spiritual influence has been unspoken or, at best, misunderstood. No more." --Nick Ripatrazone, author of Longing for an Absent God
