From Library Journal:

Simmons (humanities, MIT) takes us on a journey through some sparsely charted waters: the passage of an individual from Christian Science to his own personal epiphany. The tensions of living in a secular world lead Simmons to conclude that the best action is "to choose one's own faith, rather than the faith that is chosen for one." Ultimately, he acknowledges life and the material as real--despite imperfections--rather than as the illusory, spiritual manifestations of his youth. Weaving poetry and philosophy throughout this pilgrimage, Simmons offers an intelligent, literate account of his personal "dark night of the soul." Recommended where inspirational narratives circulate.
