Blogger wants to read A Religion of One's Own

Pamela Morse blogs support for Thomas Moore's new book, A Religion of One's Own, to be published by Gotham Books (Penguin) and expected in Fall, 2013. Moore talks about his book with Doug Foresta in a 25-minute audio interview recorded Friday 8 March 2013.

Morse praises Moore and the Dalai Lama: "[They] teach kindness, meditation, and natural magic. As experts in religion, as scholars, and as holders of the traditions, these men are shining stars. We are lucky that they have both chosen to write books for us, teach us, and even, bless their hearts, tweet us. They are both telling us we need to connect to spirit and each other for quality of life." In this post she also shares Moore's short video about his earlier book, Writing in the Sand: Jesus and the Soul of the Gospels (2009).
