In this disarmingly witty look at the disrepair of the divine, George Dennis O’Brien offers a guide for finding the sacred in the everyday. Christopher Lasch called the book, first published over twenty years ago, “an astute analysis of our spiritual malaise.” God and the New Haven Railway, with a new preface by the author, speaks to us still with humor and hope because neither God nor the railroad seems to be running much better today. The book is an excellent introductory text for Religion 101 courses. Adult education classes in various denominations will also profit from reading it.

“O’Brien . . . a remarkably nimble thinker, abandons the railway simile from time to time, but he is never at a loss for a clever figure of speech in this brief examination of the faded state of modern belief.” —Boston Globe
