Thanks to everyone who helped me spread the word about the book sale last week! It was really exciting to hit the end of the day and see Seeking the Mystery ranked at #1 in Amazon’s Paganism and Theology categories — but more importantly, it looks like the book is starting lots of good conversations. :)

    “Seeking the Mystery.” Seems more like “Found The Mystery,” but I suspect you are too humble for that, so I will throw it out there for you. I definitely will have to consider buying my own copy. Blessed Be.

      Thanks!

      The nature of mystery, I think, is that one can always go deeper. :)

    I really enjoyed reading “Seeking the Mystery” and thought it was excellent.

    I am rubbish at review-writing though (I would rather go to the dentist than write a book review).
