The essays included are informal, accessible musings, not sanctimonious sermons. They are intended for anyone who wants to take time to consider spiritual issues, regardless of his or her involvement in organized religion. The subjects addressed are universal: faith in God, forgiveness, appreciation of one's family, the fleetingness of time, the relationship between science and religion. Back Porch Faith will appeal to the growing number of people who have come to feel that spirituality is not simply the province of their own particular denomination or sect. Any thoughtful person, whether Christian, Jew, Buddhist, or other, will feel engaged and enriched by the words found here.
