Selected Works

Nonfiction
“Eyes wide open, Barbara Brown Taylor has written a precise and evocative field guide to the dark. Exploring the complex and generative terrain of twilight and absence on her own terms, she generously includes us on her journeys, and encourages us to make our own.” (Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Lovingkindness)
“Sermons wonderfully intelligent, moving and direct.”
--Annie Dillard
The 1997 Lyman Beecher Lectures on Preaching at Yale
Memoir
New York Times Bestseller "This is the most completely beautiful book in religion that I have read in a very long time."
--Phyllis Tickle
Georgia Author of the Year "I love this book. Her beautiful, absorbing memoir will bless countless readers, helping us to see God in the church, and out in the world, and in the small interstices in between."
--Lauren Winner
