Here are thirty dazzling short stories by eminent writers of widely varying persuasions dealing with the question of faith--both its presence and its absence. The stories range from the comic to the passionate, from the skeptical to the mystical. Some make their way into the perplexities of belief, some explore the hazy perimeter of unconditional love and forgiveness, and others examine the paradoxes of discipleship. All engage issues of deep and universal appeal. Gathered by an esteemed editor of The Atlantic Monthly, the stories in God: Stories offer insight and pleasure not only to the faithful but also to spiritual seekers--and to those who simply love fine stories. (A Mariner Original)
