-Andrea Atkins, author of the Women's Day Magazine article: Inspiring Stories about Women: How I made over my faith
It takes a strong and courageous individual to launch herself into unknown territory in the midst of vast and devastating unfamiliarity. Yet, this is just what Pamay Bassey did when her world was transformed by a series of deeply impactful events. In the face of uncertainty, she commenced a search for God that took her into a variety of geographical regions, liturgical spaces and interfaith worship experiences. Her story is one of insatiable faith, holy curiosity and Womanist courage. Furthermore, there is nothing quite like hearing her story straight from her lips. Her telling captures how a season of personal loss and struggle was eclipsed by her discovery of God in the most unlikely locales, and how this discovery continues to enlighten her human experience. There is something for all to hear and learn from her story.
-Rev. Neichelle Guidry Jones, Ordained elder in the Kingdom Council of Christian Churches and Ministries; Associate Pastor to Young Adults, Trinity United Church of Christ, Chicago, Illinois
My 52 Weeks of Worship is a gem of a source of inspiration for anyone going through difficult times or pondering the big life questions. I'm completely taken with the way she not only took a very personal experience of loss and channeled it into a journey of exploration, but more so with the way that she is now sharing her journey with others.
-Erin Mason, PhD, Assistant Professor of Counseling, DePaul University

Almost twenty years later, 52 Weeks Of Worship helped me continue my religious sampling without leaving my couch. Bassey's pilgrimage takes her through 52 different ways that others have found their way closer to God, whatever that means to them. Some of her revelations were surprising ... the religions that almost wooed her away from her home church. The ones that left her absolutely cold. The welcomes. The refusals. All of which took a large amount of courage to endure, Sunday after Sunday.
Ultimately, by embracing all, the author got closer to her own.
If you are seeking answers, almost every religion has a tome. But this is the book could put your feet on the road to your own religious home.
This book is fascinating as the author visits a different house of worship every week for an entire year. I had been reading her blog on line so I was somewhat familiar with why she did this but the book explains it in more detail. Everyone should step out of their comfort zone and connect with people you think aren't like you - as the book says, you don't have to agree with them or accept their beliefs, but there are common human values to be found. This is not an in depth study of various religions, just the author's experiences and feelings. As a spiritual seeker myself at one time, I enjoyed the book and applaud her courage. Reading about a religion and actually attending a service are very different things.
