It’ll be a spirited night at Book Passage when we join Barbara Falconer Newhall in a book launch for her new book Wrestling With God.

Wrestling With God presents the intimate first-person narratives of thoughtful Americans seeking to live their faith in an increasingly secular, multicultural and globalized world.

The stories are woven together by Barbara’s own spiritual quest as she reveals how the people she has interviewed have moved her along on her personal journey – from a restless yearning for the lost God of her Christian childhood to a new and unexpected kind of faith. Among the storytellers in Wrestling With God are a Native American, a Nobel Laureate physicist, a World War II POW, a former Buddhist monk, a Shamanic priestess and an atheist.

Seekers and believers alike will find inspiration in the Barbara’s journey toward a belief that can withstand the challenges of our twenty-first-century world.
