Barbara Brown Taylor, beloved spiritual teacher and New York Times bestselling author, specializes in helping us find the sacred in unexpected places. In Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others, she continues her spiritual journey, contemplating the many ways she encountered God while teaching a college course on the world’s religions to students in rural Georgia.

Christians are taught that God is everywhere—a tenet that is central to Barbara Brown Taylor’s life and faith. In her multi faith class, Barbara introduces her students to different religious traditions and accompanies them on field trips to a variety of venues of worship. Both she and her students ponder how the knowledge and insights they have gained raise important questions about belief and how different practices relate to their own faith. Throughout Holy Envy, Barbara weaves together stories from her classroom with reflections on how her own journey has been challenged and renewed by connecting with people of other traditions—and by meeting God in her communion with them.

Barbara Brown Taylor is the author of fourteen books, including the New York Times bestseller An Altar in the World; Leaving Church, which received an Author of the Year Award from the Georgia Writers Association; and New York Times bestseller Learning to Walk in the Dark, which was named one of Publishers Weekly’s Best Religion Books of 2014 and received a 2015 Living Now Book Award. Barbara was named as one of the top 12 preachers in America by Baylor University. She lives on a working farm in rural northeast Georgia with her husband Ed.
