Reviews

"An elegant writer with the common touch, Taylor is always a wonderful guide to the spiritual world, and this book is no exception. Here she encourages us to turn out the lights and embrace the spiritual darkness, for it is in the dark, she maintains, that one can truly see."--Booklist
"Compellingly makes the case for why darkness is as necessary to our well-being as light. . . . A charming, witty and wise guide into the heart of darkness. . . . There is plenty here to ponder."--Shelf Awareness
"Eyes wide open, Barbara Brown Taylor has written a precise and evocative field guide to the dark. Exploring the complex and generative terrain of twilight and absence on her own terms, she generously includes us on her journeys, and encourages us to make our own."--Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Lovingkindness
"Barbara Brown Taylor shows readers that dark times can be great times of learning. The former Episcopalian priest shares her experiences of walking through the dark in her own life. ... She takes the reader on a journey to explore and understand the 'dark' better."--CBA Retailers magazine
"Taylor offers no consolation for those who demand the banishment of darkness. But to those willing to enter the darkness and wait in silence, she gives hope."--The Covenant Companion
"Few souls are as synched to the world's mysteries as Barbara Brown Taylor's.... Taylor writes spiritual nonfiction that rivals the poetic power of C.S. Lewis and Frederick Buechner."--TIME
"Taylor challenges our negative associations with darkness and our attraction to light in this thought-provoking new book. She draws on her own experiences--from exploring caves and experimenting with blindness, to her questioning of her own religious training and faith--to explore what might be gained by embracing darkness."--Spirituality & Health
"Taylor writes with consistent charm and an unobtrusive faith in God; her work is certain to appeal to... fans of Annie Dillard and Anne Lamott."--Library Journal
"Reading Barbara Brown Taylor's writing stuns me, challenges me, and heals me, both with the beauty of her prose and the depth of her wisdom. A gift to every person who's felt the darkness but not had the words to articulate it... A truly beautiful book."--Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine
"Beautiful. Profound. Nourishing. I have needed to read this book for a long time."--Lauren Winner, author of Still and Girl Meets God
"Taylor is one of those rare people who truly can see the holy in everything."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
