In the critically acclaimed memoir Girl Meets God, Lauren F.
Winner chronicled her sojourn from Judaism to Christianity.
Now, in Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis, Winner describes
how experiences of loss and failure unexpectedly slam her
into a wall of doubt and spiritual despair: “My belief has
faltered, my sense of God’s closeness has grown strained, my
efforts at living in accord with what I take to be the call
of the gospel have come undone.”
Witty, relatable, and fiercely honest, Winner lays bare her
experience of what she calls the “middle” of the spiritual
life. In elegant and spare prose, she explores why—in the
midst of the overwhelming anxiety, loneliness, and boredom
of her deepest questioning about where (or if) God is—the
Christian story still explains who she is better than any
other story she’s ever known. Still is an absorbing
meditation combining literary grace with spiritual wisdom.
It is sure to resonate with anyone looking to sustain a
spiritual life in the midst of real life.
