Book Discussion "Living with a Wild God" by Barbara Ehrenreich

Details

Our book for March is the Living with a Wild God: A Nonbeliever's Search for the Truth about Everything by the late essayist Barbara Ehrenreich.

From Amazon:
In middle age, Ehrenreich came across the journal she had kept during her tumultuous adolescence and set out to reconstruct that quest, which had taken her to the study of science and through a cataclysmic series of uncanny –or as she later learned to call them, mystical" – experiences. A staunch atheist and rationalist, she is profoundly shaken by the implications of her life-long search.

Part memoir, part philosophical and spiritual inquiry, Living with a Wild God brings an older woman's wry and erudite perspective to a young girl's uninhibited musings on the questions that, at one point or another, torment us all. Ehrenreich's most personal book ever will spark a lively and heated conversation about religion and spirituality, science and morality, and the "meaning of life."

"A smart and enjoyable read... Ehrenreich maintains a grip on a sensible skepticism about religious matters – and a positive hostility toward the idea of unthinking faith – while avoiding the narrow-minded excesses that more zealous atheists sometimes fall victim to." – The Chicago Tribune
