The author put her all into this book, an almost 20-year project. She frames the narratives well and treats her interviewees with a great deal of respect, even though at times her religious beliefs don't align in any way. She features people with vastly different backgrounds and religions—as I felt myself particularly attached to a few interviewees, another reader will likely feel a similar connection to a different few.
The last chapter—the author's own search for God—felt especially meaningful, with its combination of doubt, hope, and gentle reverence. I could see anyone enjoying this book.
