In the New York Times bestseller An Altar in the World, acclaimed author Barbara Brown Taylor continues her spiritual journey by building upon where she left off in Leaving Church.  With the honesty of Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) and the spiritual depth of Anne Lamott (Grace, Eventually), Taylor shares how she learned to find God beyond the church walls by embracing the sacred as a natural part of everyday life. In An Altar in the World, Taylor shows us how to discover altars everywhere we go and in nearly everything we do as we learn to live with purpose, pay attention, slow down, and revere the world we live in.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-written book I have been studying this book, a chapter a month, with a group of friends, and we have all found it to be extremely clear and full of pertinent examples of the different "practices" she discusses in each chapter, i.e., the practice of getting lost, etc. The questions that can be found at another website are also very helpful to use in conjunction with the book.
