Reviews

"A gorgeously written and compelling investigation into what it means to strike up a friendship with the Living God."--James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
"The images Lauren introduces me to in Wearing God have stayed with me, enriching my prayers and broadening my view of God. I love her writing, and this book is no exception."--Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine
"With her trademark acerbic wit and wry honesty, Winner delves into a few seldom used biblical images for God. . . . A mixture of anecdotes and thought-provoking analysis, Wearing God proves a wise and appealing companion on the journey."--Shelf Awareness
"Lauren Winner's Wearing God is playful, serious, informative, devotional, and as important as it is gratifying. . . . I read it with the sort of joy one feels when watching someone utterly hit their stride."--Christian Century
"In Wearing God--a book both winsome and erudite--Winner convenes a salon of saints and biblical writers to reveal that God is much more than just Shepherd or King and far more interesting than we thought."--Fred Bahnson, Wake Forest University School of Divinity, author of Soil and Sacrament: A Spiritual Memoir of Food and Faith
"Lauren's curiosity about the life of faith is so compelling--and her intelligence so engaging--that there is nothing more satisfying than settling down with a new book from her. The only problem is that it is impossible to read her without being changed; so advance at your own risk."--Barbara Brown Taylor, author of Learning to Walk in the Dark
"If Christianity is to regain its credibility, or even its positive character, people are going to have to read books like this! Winner opens up Scripture in ways that are loyal to the Great Tradition, and yet readable, faith-filled, and applicable to the world we actually live in."--Richard Rohr, O.F.M., author of Falling Upward
"Lauren Winner explores less familiar biblical descriptions of God and how each shapes the way we think about who God is. Wearing God is a warm, playful reflection that not only expands our understanding of God, but also highlights the delicate interweaving of language and imagination."--Relevant Magazine
"Provides a playful and thoughtful excursion into fresh ways of seeing and savoring the Divine in the unfolding of our ordinary lives."--Spirituality & Practice
" [An] appealing book . . . a thoughtful mediation on God, spirituality, and the fabric of life."--Booklist
"Combining spiritual insight and beautifully descriptive prose . . . Winner looks at the ways God can be known through the everyday and familiar. [Her] honest, charming reflections stir the imagination and invite the reader to explore . . . the treasure trove the Bible provides."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
