Review

"I think your book is terriffic. I really enjoyed reading it and think the structure is genius."
-Elizabeth Lesser, author, Broken Open; co-founder and senior adviser of Omega Institute

From the Back Cover

My 52 Weeks of Worship is a clever and unusual look at one woman's journey to regain her spirituality. Pamay Bassey has done what most people could never even imagine--spending one day each week in a different house of worship. That effort and commitment taught her the universality of community, the joy of sharing, the importance of respect, and the pride that people who are committed to religion feel about their churches, synagogues, and mosques. Most of all, she learned that there is dignity in worship--however you practice it--and that all people must find their own way to a more fulfilling life. We can all learn from her experience.

-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

I really enjoyed reading My 52 Weeks of Worship! After seeing an article about the author on TheRoot.com, I wanted to check out her book. But I have to admit I was a little hesitant, because I was afraid it might make fun of certain religions or have a hidden agenda to encourage readers to switch religions, not believe in God, or something like that. If anything, I walked away feeling like learning about other faiths is a great way to deepen your own. Also, I liked that I was able to follow along and that I laughed out loud plenty of times - some books about spirituality are so new-agey and preachy that I just end up irritated by them and miss the message...not the case with this one. I already purchased a gift copy for a friend.

What a terrific book! The concept is wonderful, and it was so well written! With all the negativity and fear surrounding religion and faith, it was so wonderful to read about the authors open mindedness, and follow her as she pursued a deeper understanding of her own beliefs. It was truly inspiring, and I can't wait to share this book with my friends and family!

As someone who has experienced the deep pain of tragedy, as well as the transformative power of the process of healing from it, I was deeply moved by this book. What truly resonated with me was that as an entrepreneur, the author balanced this spiritual journey while simultaneously running several businesses. So I think you'll particularly love My 52 Weeks of Worship if you are an extremely busy person (entrepreneur, businessperson, parent, student, caregiver, etc.) and struggle with and/or seek practical advice and examples of how to make time to connect with God, despite your busy schedule. The author recognizes that we are all human, and it was easy to learn along with her as I read because she not only discusses her triumphs, but her hiccups. An honest, inspiring, helpful read.

What can I say about this book? It is interesting, inspiring, emotional, uplifting, well written, truthful, and...I think I've run out of adjectives! I am in a process right now of deepening my faith so this book really interested me. Like the author, I'm not looking for a new religion, but I enjoy learning about other faiths and how they encourage and develop their congregations' relationship with God. This book inspired me to learn about other religions and and made me really wish that I had been with her on this journey because I wanted to experience what she did. I love how open and non-judgemental she was (kind of like Jesus) with the different ways that people chose to praise and honor God. Is it all pleasing to God? Probably. And it just goes to show that there is no better way to praise God and this book really illustrates this.
This is just an inspirational book that is well written and the author opens up her life and her pain to the reader. Read this book!!

No matter one's background, we can all relate to life events and tragic losses that inspire us to seek a deeper sense of meaning and spirituality-- a subject that is typically approached so privately its hard to feel anything but alone in our individual healing and pursuit of God. My 52 Weeks of Worship beautifully documents the Author's journey with authenticity and is quite inspirational. I read this book on my own but think it would be excellent choice for a book club.

This is a great read! At first I was nervous because the book was a little longer and I don't have as much time as I would like to read fun books. So was happy too see that the book is organized in a way that doesn't force you to read it straight through - I have actually just been using the table of contents to hop around and explore different religions that I am interested in learning more about.

Not only has "52 Weeks of Worship" inspired me to be more open to other religions and points of view, but it opened my soul to a higher level of understanding of self...the ultimate relationship, which for me is my higher power that I call God. Thank you for your words and sharing your journey with the rest of the world. I look forward to the next one!

This book is a wonderful read, but I expected more in-depth information on the different religions the author was exposed to by going to different places of worship. Thankfully, she has a blog which is a nice supplement to the book. This book is mainly an autobiography of her journey through grief. She's an articulate writer and I enjoyed experiencing her story.
