Review:

Lynda Sexson offers a theology of everyday experience in this enchanting book that shows how religious traditions of the world lie slightly concealed in the details and commonplaces of ordinary life.

(Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul)

Ordinarily Sacred is an extraordinarily original book whose importance has yet to be fully recognized.

(Frederick Turner, University of Texas at Dallas)

Lynda Sexson, in this beautifully written book, brings us back to the first metaphysics of Western culture and to the understanding that the ground she is treading on is ours, our common way of making experience..which holds universally across cultures, literal, oral, scientific, popular.

(Antonio T. de Nicolas Journal of Social and Biological Structures)
