Description
Relating their own spiritual experiences in these brief essays, personalities from Paulo Coelho, Andre Dubus, and Madeleine L'Engle to Hakeem Olajuwon, Leontyne Price, and Desmond Tutu speak to their personal connection to God.

"[Joanna] Laufer and [Kenneth] Lewis provide a prologue and chapter introductions, but the text itself comprises first-person accounts in which various notables from all walks of life describe how God reveals his presence to them. For Leontyne Price, it was in the prayer she offered before her debut on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House. For attorney Alan Dershowitz, it comes (not surprisingly) in his daily arguments with God. And for award-winning physicist John Polkinghorne, God is revealed through the beautiful structure of the universe. The selections are brief but quite moving. The diversity of the writers (and their religions) adds to the strength of the book; no matter what one's faith, it's hard not see a common thread in the ways belief in God affects people's lives."Booklist
