Praise for Bringing God Home

“A profound book. As we set out to bring God home, we are the ones who return
home.” --Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“Forrest Church is a perfect guide through the oceans of belief.” --Diane Ackerman

“Bringing God Home is a book whose arrival could not have come at a more
important moment in human history.” --Faye Wattleton

“Intensely human and mystically profound. A spiritually hungry world will
love this book.” --Bishop John Shelby Spong

Using his own spiritual quest as a starting point, Forrest Church has written a book that will comfort and inspire readers of all backgrounds and creeds. Drawing insight and courage from poets, philosophers, and prophets from across the ages, and from ordinary people from across the street, he challenges us to set out on the journey of our lives, and then guides our steps back home.
