An inveterate doubter for most of her adult life, award-winning journalist Barbara Falconer Newhall embarks upon a quest to find a way to believe in God in the twenty-first century. The result is Wrestling with God: Stories of Doubt and Faith, which details her years-long search for the Divine in the lives of radically diverse Americans - from a fundamentalist Christian activist to a progressive Muslim leader to a Hindu classical dancer.
In Wrestling with God, Newhall presents the deeply personal stories of a score of Americans encountered on her journey- believers, skeptics, contemplatives, activists. She also reports on the progress of her own rocky spiritual journey and how ultimately she arrives at a place of surrender to the universe's enduring mystery.
Barbara Newhall is a member of St. John's. In her book there is an interview with former St. John's member Geoff Machin. Book orders are print on demand.
