Now and Then: A Memoir of Vocation

Frederick Buechner, Author HarperOne $13 (128p) ISBN 978-0-06-061182-8
In these spiritual memoirs, novelist, essayist and Presbyterian minister Buechner explores his belief that God speaks to us through events. The first volume is devoted to his childhood, years at Princeton and inclination toward the ministry--according to PW, his ``reflections on death and bereavement are especially felicitous.'' In the second, he ``issues a graceful invitation to share the insights of a contemporary God-centered person'' as he recalls his years as a seminary student, school minister and developer of Phillips Exeter Academy's religion department.
