Review

“At a time when many people are entrenched behind the walls of familiar traditions, this book is a literal godsend.” (Retailing Insight)

“This indispensable book guides us through America’s rapidly diversifying religious landscape, highlighting resonances between different religions, narrating moments of spiritual inspiration, and always emphasizing moments of human connection.” (Eboo Patel, author of Out of Many Faiths)

“Engrossing, delightful...In short, it is a timely and important book.” (Psychological Perspectives)

“I’ve long wanted a book like this to be written. And Barbara Brown Taylor is the perfect guide to finding God in other faiths. Her new book reminds us that God is bigger than any one religion. Prepare to come to know God in a new way.” (James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage)

“There are few people writing today who I esteem more highly than Barbara Brown Taylor. In an age in which religion sometimes seems weaponized, furthering the distance between us, I can’t think of a more important offering than this beautiful book.” (Shauna Niequist, New York Times best-selling author of Present Over Perfect )

“In showing up for the complex beauty of all the world’s great wisdom traditions, Barbara finds her way home to her own faith. Among the finest memoirs I have ever read of the life of a teacher.” (Mirabai Starr, author of God of Love)

“Taylor nudges her students away from spiritual appropriation and comparison , moving them instead toward challenging discernment of their faith and the faith of others. Taylor, like the best faith leaders, is a great storyteller. . . . Highly recommended.” (Booklist (starred review))

“In Holy Envy, once again, Barbara Brown Taylor does not disappoint with this capacious engagement of our religious and spiritual neighbors. The book is like a breath of fresh air that scatters the dust off the surface of my faith, and I am rejuvenated and hopeful.” (Mihee Kim-Kort, author of Outside the Lines)

“In simple and sharp prose, Taylor, a former Episcopal priest who teaches religion at Piedmont College in Athens, Ga., explores how teaching an introductory religion course has influenced her own views on faith and Christianity...[a] fluid book.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Taylor acknowledges that none of us has a corner on the transcendent, that we each have something to give and receive while remaining true to our faith. She reminds us that religion is more than beliefs, that it involves our deepest selves and is the fabric of our shared lives.” (Library Journal) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
