Peter Occhiofrosso, Author Viking Books $22.95 (432p) ISBN 978-0-670-82993-4
A reevaluation of their secular humanist stances drew many of those whose stories we hear in this collection to alternative approaches to spirituality. Occhiogrosso, author of Once a Catholic , in which prominent figures assessed the effects of their early religious training, interviewed a range of people whose lives continue to be transformed by spiritual experience. Among them are a Catholic couple who finds fulfillment within the context of their faith; a former Wall Streeter who founded Centurion Ministries, an apostolate to prisoners; a Christian who leads an Islamic mosque in New York City. Perhaps most vividly told is the journey of Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, author of Visions of Glory: A History and Memory of Jehovah's Witnesses, which brought her back to the church of her childhood. These tales indicate that there is widespread spiritual practice and awareness in America. (Oct.)
