Kushner makes you aware of the sacred things in your life. Jun 15, 1999
I had never read anything by Lawrence Kushner before, but had heard some of his commentaries on National Public Radio. Recently a friend gave me this book as a birthday present.
What an absolute pleasure it has been to read! Each essay is usually only a few pages long so it is an easy book to find time to read.
He is a great writer, with a wonderful sense of humor, but he delivers some amazingly creative insight and makes you look at your world and what you believe in in a completely fresh new way.
I would highly recommend this book since it is a sampler of his best writings, with a mix of new and previously published material. You will not be disappointed, this is a wonderful read and a great gift.
