Book Description


New York Times Bestseller

The renowned and beloved New York Times bestselling author Barbara Brown Taylor recounts her moving discoveries of finding the sacred in unexpected places while teaching the world’s religions in rural Georgia.


In Holy Envy, she contemplates the myriad ways other people and traditions encounter the Transcendent, both by digging deeper into those traditions herself and by seeing them through her students’ eyes as she sets off with them on field trips to monasteries, temples, and mosques.  


Throughout Holy Envy, Taylor weaves her own spiritual journey and the complicated and renewal that comes through connecting with people of other traditions—even those whose truths are quite different from hers.  The one constant in her odyssey is the sense that God is the one calling her to disown her version of God—a change that ultimately enriches her faith in other human beings and in God.


You’re invited to join us in the discovery and engaging in Holy Envy. 


Who Should Attend

All women (age 16+) are welcome!
