More About This Book

Overview

It is best to travel slowly along the roads and highways of Texas. Not because of speed traps, though they are there. But because if you travel slowly, you are less likely to miss the turns that will take you to the heart of this great state. Take these turns, and they will lead you to stories and places of faith. The Amazing Faith of Texas is an exploration in words and pictures of people and places that represent the strong, abiding belief that sustains faith-filled Texans. A belief that transcends the boundaries of religion. Transcends the dogma. Transcends the differences.

We have heard all we need to hear about what divides us. The Amazing Faith of Texas is about what unites us. From tiny churches on dusty back roads to the mega churches along our cities' highways, from temples, mosques, and synagogues—Amazing Faith is a look at our places of worship and a listen to the stories that bring Texans to their faith. From the desert of West Texas to the pines of East Texas, from the Panhandle to the border, The Amazing Faith of Texas is an exploration of common ground on higher ground.

    The Amazing Austin Area and a Few Strangers

    This book proves that if you have enough money, you can publish a book that includes your family and friends. Add to that a few more of the rich and famous of the Austin area, throw in a few out-of-town strangers for authenticity (unbeknownst to them), then call it art. Mike Blair wrote that he 'crisscrossed the state, searching for stories of faith...' And the book is by 'Roy Spence with the People of Texas.' Hmmmmm... The photographer's work is incredible, but many of the stories are not. This is a good example of what Chogyam Trungpa calls spiritual materialism at its best. I'd be curious to find out the number of people who are native Texans--since it seems that many are not. C'mon. Don't Mess with Texas.

    A great journey...

    This book is refreshing. It takes the reader through the great State of Texas and gives them a glimpse of the vast people that live there. But more importantly, it beckons the reader to venture outside of self. I was pleasantly surprised at what an uplifting experience that could be.

    Makes me feel better about Texas

    This book will make a great Christmas present... makes me feel like Texans' religious beliefs and practices are much richer and more varied than the media presents.
