Barbara Brown Taylor calls her book a field guide to spiritual practices: “My life depends on ignoring all touted distinctions between the secular and the sacred, the physical and the spiritual, the body and the soul. What is saving my life now is becoming more fully human, trusting that there is no way to God, apart from real life in the real world.”
Taylor is a professor of religion at Piedmont College, Demorest, Ga., and also teaches spirituality at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Ga.
She presents formal and informal spiritual practices that will help deepen our humanity and broaden our connection with others.
Along the way, she shares many colorful vignettes and ponders the experiencesof some well-known biblical characters.
In addition to keeping the Sabbath, walking meditation and prayer, she covers blessings, living with purpose and encountering others in community (HarperOne, 2009).
