In the New York Times bestseller An Altar in the World, acclaimed author Barbara Brown Taylor continues her spiritual journey by building upon where she left off in Leaving Church.  With the honesty of Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) and the spiritual depth of Anne Lamott (Grace, Eventually), Taylor shares how she learned to find God beyond the church walls by embracing the sacred as a natural part of everyday life. In An Altar in the World, Taylor shows us how to discover altars everywhere we go and in nearly everything we do as we learn to live with purpose, pay attention, slow down, and revere the world we live in.

The eBook includes a special excerpt from Barbara Brown Taylor's Learning to Walk in the Dark.


  • An Altar To The World

    By Carol Dodd
    This book was given to me at a time in my life when I had almost given up on believing in anything religious or spiritual. I believed I was too human, that my life had to rise above all that humanity for me to be loved or have any kind of spiritual life. This book gave new hope and inspiration, just realizing that my humanness was a part of life that allowed me to practice spirituality through the simplest of activities. I think tomorrow I will read a poem to the beautiful trees in my yard.
  • A great help

    I used this book with my church during Lent. They loved it. It gives great advice on the many ways to see God in our lives beyond our church doors. Highly recommended!
