Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Zaleski, editor of the now long-running series of best essays and poetry in spirituality, has repeated his annual miracle, uniting another year's worth of various and thought-provoking pieces. The 2011 edition includes work by Robert D. Kaplan, Terry Teachout, Philip Yancey, Marilyn Nelson, and Rick Bass, as well as poetry by Billy Collins, Nancy Willard, Richard Wilbur, Philip Schultz, and C.K. Williams. VERDICT Essential for individuals who have read earlier volumes, and an excellent place to start for those who have not.
