Holy the Firm

51KDyDrzHrL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgHoly the Firm by Annie Dillard

This small work is a meditative three-part piece on the nature of life and God. Dillard explores some interesting metaphors for life, pain, suffering, etc. Dillard’s prose constantly strives for insight and growth (that’s why she has a Pulitzer Prize in nonfiction) and those who are only familiar with her writing on nature, like the Pulitzer Prize-winning Pilgrims at Tinker Creek, will enter new territory with Dillard’s religious writing.
