Editorial Reviews

Review

“Bestselling author and scholar Bass takes two seemingly contradictory recent surveys of the mood of Americans as the jumping off point for her excellent call for a more conscientious practice of gratitude…. Will please longtime fans as well as readers interested in living a more productively thankful life.”  (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

“Diana Butler Bass is one of the most thoughtful, insightful voices to emerge among us. Her words are a gentle but fierce reminder that on some eternal level, all is well.” (Marianne Williamson, New York Times bestselling author of Tears to Triumph)

“Gratitude is the undeniable beginning of the spiritual life.  Diana Butler Bass offers us a superb overview of this virtue in our individual and communal lives. As she unpacked the various graces and challenges associated with expressing thanks, I found myself grateful to her for this deeply spiritual book.” (James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage and The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything)

“There is no better response to this historical moment than cultivating gratitude. This book will show both why and how to do it, and in the process you will get the extraordinary pleasure of Diana’s company, as she rediscovers the gifts that gratitude brings.” (Ana Marie Cox, political commentator, host of With Friends Like These podcast)

“Grateful is a timely and beautifully-written book. The practice of gratitude has been a lifeline for me in a challenging season, and this wise book articulates both a helpful challenge and a soul-shaping framework.” (Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect)

“An insightful, illuminating, and thought-provoking book on the subject, one that is simultaneously a meditation and celebration.” (Booklist)

Bass writes about things that matter, and she does so with graceful, accessible intelligence. In Grateful, she guides us to discover how we can grow in gratitude as individuals and as communities. If you let this book into your mind, it will find its way to your deepest heart. (Brian D. McLaren, author of The Great Spiritual Migration)

“In Grateful, Diana Butler Bass is a calming voice in raging cultural seas. She accomplishes this feat by flipping individualism on its head using a surprising lever: gratitude. Grateful is challenging and refreshing, and speaks to the core of so much modern misery.” (“Science Mike” McHargue, author of Finding God in the Waves and co-host of The Liturgists Podcast)

“Deep, warm, smart, spiritual, reflective, practical, thoughtful and oh-so-engaging, Gratitude is a spoonful of honey to help us transform the ‘hard’ in our lives into wisdom, compassion, and even resistance.” (The Rev. Jacqueline J. Lewis, Senior Minister, Middle Collegiate Church and author of The Pentecost Paradigm)

Grateful is that beautiful miracle of both challenge and embrace; pushing us toward a deeper way of living while understanding how difficult that living can be and what it costs us. Diana’s warmth, humor, and resilient faith are in full bloom in Grateful—and they’re contagious. (John Pavlovitz, author of A Bigger Table)
