Book News Annotation:

Religion scholar Webb, back home in Australia after three decades in the US, roams across religious traditions, listening for examples and explanations of how people have engaged the Sacred. She takes no position on whether there is a Sacred, and if so whether humans can in fact engage it; her interest is in the attempts. Among the perspectives she finds are what humans want, Earth as a sacred site, gurus and go-betweens, sensing the Sacred, engaging the Sacred in the world, and engaging the Sacred together.
