Coneixement comú



Reading Taylor's work continues to be a pleasure. As she outlines her experience teaching Religion 101 at a small private college in the south, she also shares her very personal response—something like a spiritual crush—on aspects of orthodoxy and orthopraxy as she keeps company with different faith traditions.

Thoughtful and thought-provoking.

Most of the book is self-reflection of the author’s relationship with God and the dark, both physical darkness and spiritual. One interesting part was her experience in a wild cave (as supposed to a show cave). She detailed the clothing necessary and described the darkness well. The summary to me sounds as if she believes in God, but not in organized religion ways.
