I am completely taken with Working on the Inside. I've tried to resist reading it straight through, since it is so rich with anecdote, good theological writing, and spiritual insight-like a box of chocolates-but I am already half way through. It's the best book on spirituality I've read since Alan Jones' Living the Truth.--The Rev. Canon Thomas P. Miller, Canon for Liturgy and the Arts, Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine
