*Editor’s Note: This is a contribution from Martha Elias Downey, author of Go Wide, which came out today! LET ME TELL YOU A STORY… Some years ago, I was wandering through a crowded antique store when I came across a musty old book about mysticism. I was a graduate student in Theological Studies at the time, looking for something to jumpstart my thesis, so I plunked down eleven dollars and took the book home, eager to explore the wise and... Read more

*Editor’s Note: This is a contribution from Jon Turney, cohost of This is Not Church Podcast, a part of the QuoirCast Network.

Editor’s Note: This is a contribution from Brandon Andress, author of the book What Can’t Be Hidden, which was published in 2021 by Quoir Publishing.

Editor’s Note: This is a contribution from Heather Hamilton, author of the book Returning to Eden, which was published in 2023 by Quoir Publishing. No, not those kind of tongues.

Editor’s Note: This is a contribution from Quoir author, Nick Vleisides. His book, Used to Go to Church, was released by Quoir Publishing in 2020. I read this the other day. “God is not only stranger than we think, but stranger than we can think.” It is a strange world that we live in wouldn’t you agree? Twenty-five years ago, I would hear much older than I gurus of the faith, who I respected a great deal at the time,... Read more

Welcome to The Quorus, a new group blog from Quoir Publishing. I’ll be the editor over here, and you may know me from my Patheos blog, All Set Free. If you don’t, head on over there and see what I’m all about (but only after reading this entry). Because here’s the thing: this blog isn’t about me (cry for me!). It’s about the chorus of voices that will be introducing themselves over the coming weeks, all of which are authors... Read more
