National Best Books 2007 Award-Winner in Religion


"Insightful, imaginative, and provocative! Val Webb's new book has freed the Divine from the religious. A striking achievement."-John Shelby Spong, author ofJesus for the Non-Religious


InLike Catching Water in a Net, Val Webb is not out to prove the existence of a God or the Divine, but to set out intuitions or intimations of the Divine nature and attributes from the stories and literature of the world's religions. Casting her net more widely than Karen Armstrong inThe History of GodorJack Miles inGod: A Biography, Webb delves deeply into the poetry and sayings of Sufi, Buddhist, and Hindu mystics, the nature religion of the ancient Mesopotamians, their kin the Israelites, and the Aboriginal people of her own beloved Australia.
