Publisher's Description

In the highly praised memoir Things Seen and Unseen, Nora Gallagher reflected on a year of spiritual renewal and the fact of mortality with uncommon wisdom and grace. We rejoin her in Practicing Resurrection as Gallagher searches for direction in the wake of her brother’s death. A desire to reclaim her own “wild life” and a sense of the sacred in the world compels her to assess everything: her marriage, her writing career, and her commitment to parish life. A profound testimony to the urgency of living with meaning, to the natural world’s solace and sacredness and a beautiful and often harrowing account of the search for vocation. Gallagher bears witness to the way death yields new life.

Editorial Reviews

“Honest and human and surprisingly humorous in its clarity of vision.” —The Washington Post Book Review

“Gallagher is a thoughtful and talented writer who succeeds in making questions of belief, politics and tradition part of a wholly personal story that will engage open-minded readers of all faiths.”—The San Francisco Chronicle

“Nora Gallagher is able to bring words to the ineffable, and to make audible the language of prayer, especially the prayer that emanates from everyday life--from marriage and friendship, from work and family. A gorgeous, deeply honest, wise book.” —Sue Halpern, author of Four Wings and a Prayer

“With a poet’s ear for language and a novelist’s eye for essential detail, Gallagher offers a compelling story of her journey.” —Publishers Weekly
