View all copies of this ISBN edition:

When the author began attending church she had more doubt than faith. Her biggest struggle was with the language of Christian religion. This is the story of one woman's gradual conversion, but it is also an investigation into how we can embrace beliefs passed down to us and make them our own.

Kathleen Norris (author of The Cloister Walk) speaks to the great internal barricade that many spiritual seekers experience when they return to their childhood roots in Christianity; the language blocks the way. Words such as exorcism, demonic, sinner, and judgement act as locked gates, especially for those who have studied New Age notions and feminist ideology. As a seeker, feminist and poet, Norris was especially sensitive to the language of Christianity when she began her journey back to the Christian church. Word by word, Norris offers a contemplative discussion of how the scary language of Christianity can become palatable and even offer amazing comfort and grace. --Gail Hudson
