There's nothing more American than a road trip-- and a spiritual road trip at that. From mosque to synagogue to chapel to coffee shop, Tom Levinson's entertaining and erudite stories of conversations with the faithful and the seeking get to the heart of religion in America today.

This intelligent gentleman had dedicated a year to a search for religious truth, and put his heart into this book, and he gives all the details to see the story through his eyes. I could have spent years struggling with my skeptical views of my family's religion, and my wish to share inner peace through a complex rituality. Tom taught me a much more practical approach.

I wish to thank Mr. Levinson for sharing this intimate journey.

This book is a great look at religon on a whole. The author comes at his journey with a religious background that he questions, which I know so many of us have done! The people he meets and the opinions he comes across can really make you think about religon as an institution or as a belief structure. It all depends on your point of view. Great book for those that are religious and those that are not!

The tale of a divinity school grad's travels across America talking to people of different religions about their faith. Which is the opposite of the stereotypical believers who travels the world to talk to others about his or her own faith. I read this book because the author was a law school classmate, but recommend it to others because it's a fun, insightful, hopeful picture of America.

A truly delightful book to read by a man who is a vivid storyteller. If you have ever had the pleasure to meet Tom it will make it even more enjoyable to read. Through a travelers lens he provides an insight into religion within the context of the United States.
