Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375755373, Paperback)Speaking to Americans who are skeptical about religion, but nonetheless feel a spiritual hunger, Winifred Gallagher offers a humorous and profound discussion about the state of national spirituality. Before writing this book, Gallagher made her living reporting on behavioral sciences (The Power of Place). Relying upon her impressive research skills and powers of observation, Gallagher decided to embark on a pilgrimage to resolve her uncertainty regarding the role religion would play in her life. She meditates in a Zen monastery, meets with the head of an African American mosque, journeys to Israel, and enters the protective fold of cloistered nuns. In the process she comes to many provocative conclusions, including the following:
I'm beginning to grasp that religion needn't focus on beliefs, but can at least begin with trust in your own experience of what is, but is mysterious--a different kind of challenge for a neoagnostic.... Most important, I'm already thinking of religion as a process of working on God.--Gail Hudson
