A leading authority on religion and spirituality in America recounts the changes she witnessed from 1992-2004, a period she compares to the tumultuous years of the Reformation and Peri-Reformation in Europe. As the founding editor of the religion department of Publishers Weekly, Phyllis Tickle was a key figure in bringing discussions about religion into the nation's cultural and intellectual mainstream. Prayer Is a Place is her insightful first-person account of the people she has met and the trends she has observed over twelve crucial years of change in American religion. Tickle writes about her face-to-face meetings with such luminaries as the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Chief Mullah of Jerusalem; describes speeches and conferences that redefined traditional religions; and chronicles the birth of new approaches to religion and spirituality. The result is a fascinating overview of the reconfiguration of religion in America and its impact on our culture. In charting the changes, passions and innovations that have occurred, Tickle remains a clear-eyed, unbiased and sympathetic observer. From her lively reminiscences of the 1003 Parliament of the World's Religions--a seminal gathering of Christians, Jews, Muslims and Buddhists--to an intriguing look at the rise of Gnosticism in the country to a cogent analysis of the spirituality movements that swept through America during the last decades of the twentieth century, Prayer Is a Place reminds readers that reverence can be expressed in many different forms and in many different settings.… (mer)

  njcur | Feb 13, 2014 |
This is a memoir, almost breezy in some sections, of Phyllis Tickle, during the period that she helped bring religious publishing to a front location on the American trade books scene. Tickle is a southern Episcopalian who has a broad reach in her look at religion and is sensitive to the many changes which are happening now. She and her husband raised a seven children in Memphis, Tennessee and later at a farm in Lucy, TN, which figures significantly in her book. Her story is a journey into the world of publising and of the fascinating people she met there in various parts of the United States. She believes that a new Christianity is emerging in our diverse culture, which includes people from faiths from all over the world. She attended numerous bookseelrs convnentions and has good stories to ell about them.. The World Parliament of Religions happened during her tenure at Publishers Weekly. Her sojourn with PW is the chief focus of the book, but she drops fetching insights about humanity and our need for religion all over the book. ( )
