From Our Editors

Telling the Truth is for the preacher who must pull the little cord that turns on the lectern light, must look out over the people and the silence, must begin to speak of a truth beyond telling. It is for the woman who wants to understand how people believe what they cheerfully acknowledge is a tragic, comic fairy tale. It is for anyone who believes that faith, like art, can hold a special mirror to human experience.

Editorial Reviews

“A beguiling book. . . . Buechner handles difficult subjects (eternity immortality prayer) with a casual aplomb and easy analogy” (Time)
