Learning to Walk in the Dark

One of the best books I've recently read is, hands down, Learning to Walk in the Dark by Barbara Brown Taylor.  She's also fairly local to our area.  Once I saw her in a restaurant we were having dinner in, and I felt like such a little fan girl.  (I've read a couple of her other books.)
This book is about faith when things don't make sense anymore and when the traditional Church answers just don't suffice.  It's a beautiful exploration of the important aspects of senses, vision, belief and obviously what darkness is.  She looks into caving, moon cycles, blindness, you-name-it.  We're reading it in our Sunday School class, and we're supposed to spend five more Sundays on it--I really hope we do.
