With edgy honesty and humor, Laurie Brock invites all who have longed for a deeper encounter with God to join her in the saddle (and occasionally on the ground) to discover how horses’ ways of knowing can help humans discover God speaking to us.
This book—from a powerful, vulnerable, clergy author—is for anyone who struggles with the experience of faith in the institutional church, or who feels they have connected with God on a deep level outside of church, in everyday pastimes, or in emotional moments.
“A beautifully written meditation on belief, the holy, and the healing power of horses. Mertonian in its wisdom, this profound book not only helped me see the magic of animals in everyday life, but allowed me a better understanding of my own faith journey in the Episcopal Church.”
—SILAS HOUSE, novelist, author of Southernmost
“Brock writes beautifully, with depth and passion. She gives us a sense of how horses—powerful, beautiful animals—might teach us about ourselves and God.”
—REV. CANON SCOTT GUNN, Executive Director, Forward Movement
