Learning to Walk in the Dark

Barbara Brown Taylor

Barbara Brown Taylor (HarperOne)

Barbara Brown Taylor, the New York Times best-selling author of An Altar in the World, returns with her most lyrical and profound book to date. In Learning to Walk in the Dark, Taylor turns her considerable talents and incandescent prose to illuminate a subject at once compelling and taboo: darkness. Taylor boldly calls for a move away from popular spirituality to instead embrace the “lunar spirituality” of the dark.

With her characteristic candor and charm, she takes the reader on her journey to redeem darkness—from spelunking in unlit caves to learning to do tasks such as eating and crossing the street as a blind person to re-reading Scripture to locate all the times God shows up at night. In doing so, Taylor acts as sage and guide, showing us the way darkness can teach each of us what we truly need to know. —Julie Baker
