Format: Hardcover
I cannot wait to read this book, I have been waiting for it since I first found out she was writing it. As an undergrad in religion at Harvard, LaMothe was by far the best lecturer I had. She takes the most complicated texts and unravels and explains them in a way that those of us who are not possessed of the philosopher's mind can understand. Hopefully this will be the first in a long line of books from her.
