Laura Reece Hogan is the author of I Live, No Longer I: Paul’s Spirituality of Suffering, Transformation, and Joy (Wipf & Stock, 2017), which examines the spirituality of Paul the apostle, and the poetry chapbook O Garden-Dweller (Finishing Line Press, 2017), which reimagines the classic poetic text of the Song of Songs and considers its terrain of love and belonging in connection with how we seek out the divine today in our own backyards, literally and figuratively. I Live, No Longer I was awarded the gold medal for Spirituality in the 2018 Illumination Book Awards, and won the category of Religion: Christianity in the 2017 American Book Fest Best Book Awards.

Elana C5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic book for inspiration and spiritual growth!October 17, 2017Elana CQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5For all who desire to grow spiritually this wonderful book will shine amazing light on your path! Laura Reece Hogan's discussion of the Christ pattern is nothing less than awe inspiring. She clearly delineates how we can all readily discern this pattern in Paul's life and the lives of many other spiritual giants such as Mother Teresa. She encourages us to use this pattern for our own lives and strive in all ways to attain it even though we may feel we are little birds in an overwhelming world. Her deep understanding of Paul's spirituality and her grasp of the paradox of Christ's cross allows her to give us powerful yet simple examples to help us all have new insight into these complex and profound Biblical principles. Laura addresses the difficult subjects of loss, suffering and transformation through that very pain. Our lives can be radically changed by reading this book and applying its message to every small aspect of our lives. Laura's beautiful prose makes this a book which can be read over and over or used for a Bible study. I cannot adequately convey my joy in not only reading but also meditating on so many aspects of this superb book and I most highly recommend it to everyone.
