Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rhonda | 2/3/2014

    " some interesting quotes, a great poem by Rilke in the beginning, wasn't satisfying as a memoir, which i think the book was. she was "in her head" too much. i love her radio show, however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 1/28/2014

    " I used this for a 3 week Sunday School lesson. It was well received by my class, but I thought her writing was somewhat disjointed. She tells about her journey of faith from a Fundamentalist background to an acceptance of other world views. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ctguy | 1/24/2014

    " A terrific look at one person's journey through her faith which encompasses wonderful anecdotes as to how and why she is where she is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sadia | 1/21/2014

    " This is a must read for anyone grappling for meaning or faith. Tippett brings light to the ideas and conversations that matter most. I felt that she synthesized many of the conversations I've had over time with individuals at different places on the religion/spirituality spectrum. I loved this book and plan to share it with others in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glorya | 1/10/2014

    " A very interesting autobiography from the woman at NPR's "Speaking of Faith" program. The first chapter was a little difficult to navigate but beyond that the book was very interesting. The book was purchased as a read for an adult Bible study and was well received. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hollee | 1/8/2014

    " I loved this book. I love Krista Tippett and her podcast OnBeing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue turner | 1/2/2014

    " Krista Tippett was the speaker at a conference sponsored by the Harvard Divinity School on the Future of Faith - and she was so inspiring that I bought the book there. I'd heard her program on NPR, but the thinking behind her program, which she spoke of, and is described in the book, is what's really important for me. She respects all traditions, sees the common threads, and describes faith in a way that is realistic to a modern thinker, yet really inspiring. I couldn't possibly give it justice in this review - I wish people would read it to see - and then comment! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megankellie | 1/1/2014

    " A little academic and dry, but also very sane and interesting. She calls out the weirdos for being weirdos and the facists for being facists on both sides of the divide. I did a lot of underlining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey | 12/20/2013

    " While I really love her radio show and enjoyed seeing her speak this fall, the book wasn't really that interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 11/20/2013

    " So far: That St. John's in Collegeville nurtures spiritual writers and.... Truly God-smacked folks foster openness to surprises from God and awareness of thin places. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 11/8/2013

    " I just really liked this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara | 12/8/2012

    " I really enjoy Krista's radio show, but found the book kind of meandering. I didn't actually finish reading the book. There are some good points, but not interesting enough to draw me all the way through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 6/28/2012

    " Personal and prophetic, Tippett's work emphasizes the meaning that can be found when thoughtful, humble, and sincere people come together and speak from their hearts about their faiths. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 5/25/2012

    " Excellent book. Thought-provoking, challenging, wise. It deals with complex concepts, looking at faith from the point of view of society (i.e. its function in society, etc.). Took time to read because I had to keep rereading, first to understand and then to ponder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karissa | 2/27/2012

    " there were times of great insight and times of treacherous scientific detailing that I'm not in to, but overall I love her perspective on faith and belief through personal experience, very glad her program is on the air, great dialogue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fidele | 2/23/2012

    " This book helped me get a new perspective on faith, religion and spirituality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/16/2012

    " Read this for my book group. Didn't expect to find it interesting, but I did. Tippett touches on many different aspect of faith, and includes some personal anecdotes as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/11/2011

    " This has been a most influential book in my journey of religious thought. Tippett speaks through her writing as if you were sitting with her over a cup of tea, and she gently nudges the reader to stretch their boundaries. I read it at a time when those boundaries needed to be stretched. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 10/22/2011

    " This book provided many insights, but was unfocused and did not seem to accomplish the purpose set out in the subtitle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharman Wilson | 10/6/2011

    " So much food for thought! I appreciate her respect for the good, ordinary, faithful people in the world and her understanding of how religion can be a blessing or a curse for society, depending on how it is lived ("thick" vs "thin" religion). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard Kirsch | 10/4/2011

    " Excellent -- perspective for those who are not willing to settle for "everything's caste in concrete" type of religious faith/beliefs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlene | 7/29/2011

    " gorgeous, intellectual look at something that has often been so anti-intellectual in my life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 6/11/2011

    " Pretty interesting--I'll stick with her [awesome] podcast from American Public Media though. "

    " Love her show. She is a remarkable interviewer. Although she seemed rather uncomfortable with the writing of this book, I warmed up to it and actually found much of it to be rather like poetry. "
