Are all religions essentially the same? A religion professor and former Episcopal priest, Barbara Brown Taylor here sets out on field trips to monasteries, temples, and mosques to contemplate the myriad ways that people encounter spiritual transcendence. From central stories in her own faith, Taylor takes heart in how often God chooses outsiders to teach insiders how out-of-bounds He really is. She weaves together stories from her classroom with reflections on how her own spiritual journey has been renewed by connecting with people of different traditions—a process that ultimately enriches her faith in other human beings and in God.
