I've read this book over two years with an interfaith women's discussion group, and it's a wonderful, thought-provoking book of interviews/essays with spiritual leaders and thinkers about faith. While not every essay resonated with me, a significant number of them did. I'm sure I'll come back to this book again to read individual essays. It's a great book to read and discuss with others interested in faith and interfaith. ( )

I'm reading this for a discussion group at church, and the author, Bob Abernethy of Religion and Ethics Newsweekly on PBS, will be coming to speak with us. I'll report further when all that has occurred. So far I'm finding the book (a collection of interviews with many different people) quite good. I've especially liked a couple of interviews with scientists who can reconcile science and faith. Unfortunately, I got distracted and never finished the book. ( )

This is a great resource book about a wide array of spiritual topics. It is truly an exploration of meaning, rather than just another stamped out presentation of what things are SUPPOSED to mean. ( )
