Godtalk: Travels in Spiritual America by Brad Gooch

From the author ofCity Poet, the brilliant biography of Frank OHara, now comes a fascinating account of thriving forms of spirituality in what is being called a post-denominational age. As the nineties were drawing to a close, Brad Gooch set out on a journey to explore traditional and nontraditional forms of spirituality that took him across America and to India. Goochs questpartly personal and partly investigativetook him to Chicago to read the mysterious Urantia Book; to Goa and La Jolla to experience the talks and treatments of Deepak Chopra; to Ganeshpuri and South Fallsburg, New York, to listen to the charismatic leader Gurumayi Chidvilasananda; to Bardstown, Kentucky, to observe the quiet solitude of the Trappists and to Dubuque, Iowa, to see the Trappistines; to Dallas to worship with the members of the gay congregation of the Cathedral of Hope; and to New York to talk with Muslims and Sufis. As Gooch proceeded on this unique spiritual odysseyfrom fringe to mainstreamhe witnessed diverse movements and religions and their strong appeal to a broad spectrum of followers. Brad Gooch has written a revealing, richly detailed document of our time. InGodtalk, character, dialogue, and setting come together in an irresistible, fast-paced narrative that is both engaging and informative about the unexpected nature of spirituality in America today.
