literary quest to identify an “American Gospel” coursing through
the work of both great and forgotten American geniuses, from William Byrd to Walt Whitman to William James to lynn Margulis.
“It’s a very rare writer who can manage to mix a deep knowledge
of scripture (secular and non-) with a naturalist’s sense of nature’s
textures and an activist’s righteous anger and produce from them
an intellectually serious and artfully rigorous book like [this].”—

Conversations about Science and the human Spirit
Drawn from American Public Media’s extraordinary program
Speaking of Faith, the conversations in this profoundly illuminating
book explore an emerging interface of inquiry—if not answers—
