Holy Rover

“Whether describing mystical visions or the rhythms of everyday life, Erickson turns the spiritual journey into a series of exciting transformations.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[Erickson] spins a fine yarn and weaves in a mighty dose of insight along the way . . . And her explication — never settling for an off-the-shelf recounting or humdrum heard-it-all-before — digs deep, shining light on little-known nooks and crannies of the religion world’s most uncanny characters and sacred landscapes. With every stop on the ‘Holy Rover’ tour, the armchair spiritualist stumbles into something new to learn.” Chicago Tribune

“The respect that Erickson evinces both for the God of her chosen tradition, and for the gods that came before, is scintillating.” Foreword Reviews (5-out-of-5 stars review)

“Reading Holy Rover is like hitting the lotto of a road-trip with Anne Lamott, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Elizabeth Gilbert—one filled with intoxicating conversations, exciting discoveries, and plenty of spiritual rule-breaking.” –River Jordan, author of Praying for Strangers: An Adventure of the Human Spirit 

“The writing is so good that you’ll speed through this book and wish it didn’t end. Add the perfect touch of humor, and you won’t realize how much serious ground historically and theologically you’ve covered. Read it with pleasure.” –Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and Ageless Soul.
