Overview

Barbara Falconer Newhall, journalist for Good Housekeeping, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Oakland Tribune and the Contra Costa Times, shares some of her most interesting interviews as she wrestles with the existence and benefit of divinity.

Don Lattin calls Wrestling with God a "revelation, with or without that thing we call 'religion.'" Newhall "finds God –not with thunderbolts or burning bushes— but through the heartfelt stories of people possessing a wondrous array of spiritual temperament."

Editorial Reviews

Author - Don Lattin
Wrestling with God is about revelation, with or without that thing we call “religion.” Unlike many skeptics who’ve plowed these fields, Barbara Falconer Newhall approaches the big questions with an open mind and a commitment to truly listen to what her sources are saying. In the end, she finds God—not with thunderbolts or burning bushes—but through the heartfelt stories of people possessing a wondrous array of spiritual temperament.”
Author. - Phil Cousineau
Taken together, the storytellers of Wrestling with God give voice to the reality of the modern world, which is multiphonic, skeptical, but also longing for deep meaning. A riverflow of a book that gives voice to the reality of the modern world, which is multiphonic, skeptical, but also longing for deep meaning.
Author . - Jana Riess
In a score of in-depth interviews with people from all walks of life—right and left, atheist and Christian, young and old—journalist Barbara Falconer Newhall incisively shows where these individuals find ultimate meaning. Some have had dramatic encounters with God while others discover the transcendent in personal relationships or the beauty of the earth. All, however, give thoughtful voice to the deepest questions of human life.
Author.. - Kay Campbell
Barbara Falconer Newhall, a longtime religion reporter, combines the best of gracefully practiced and written journalism with the best of a personal spiritual quest. With a persistent seeker’s humbleness, she asks good questions of thoughtful people from an astonishing range of backgrounds. Then she listens to and transcribes – with gentle editing for clarity and rhythm – their answers.
