Summary
Rodriguez's stylish new memoir, moves from Jerusalem to Silicon Valley, from Moses to Liberace, from Lance Armstrong to Mother Teresa. Rodriguez is a homosexual who writes with love of the religions of the desert that exclude him. He is a passionate, unorthodox Christian who is always mindful of his relationship to Judaism and Islam because of a shared belief in the God who revealed himself within an ecology of emptiness. And at the center of this book is a consideration of women - their importance to Rodriguez's spiritual formation and their centrality to the future of the desert religions
Summary
Examines international religious violence, growing public atheism in the West, and the author's religious rejection for his homosexuality, exploring subjects ranging from Jerusalem and Silicon Valley to Lance Armstrong and Mother Teresa
