Practicing Resurrection: A Memoir of Work, Doubt, Discernment, and Moments of Grace

Practicing Resurrection: A Memoir of Work, Doubt, Discernment, and Moments of Grace Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the highly praised memoir Things Seen and Unseen, Nora Gallagher reflected on a year of spiritual renewal and the fact of mortality with uncommon wisdom and grace. We rejoin her in Practicing Resurrection as Gallagher searches for direction in the wake of her brothers death. A desire to reclaim her own “wild life” and a sense of the sacred in the world compels her to assess everything: her marriage, her writing career, and her commitment to parish life. A profound testimony to the urgency of living with meaning, to the natural worlds solace and sacredness and a beautiful and often harrowing account of the search for vocation. Gallagher bears witness to the way death yields new life.
