We know that saying thanks is good, but many of us find it hard to sustain a meaningful life of gratefulness. Four out of five Americans report feeling gratitude on a regular basis, but those private feelings seem disconnected from larger concerns of our public lives. Examining this "gratitude gap," theologian Diana Butler Bass offers honest stories and heartrending examples from history and her own life. It is a mindset, Bass suggests, that rewards everyone arounds us, and it can facilitate greater connection with God, with the world, and even with our own souls.
