Item Description...
Articles from the "In the Spirit" column of Essence magazine offer advice and guidance on how to find peace, connect with God, and discover love for oneself, neighbors, and family.

Publishers Description
For more than two and a half decades, In the Spirit, Ms. Taylor's column in Essence magazine, has been something of a public diary. Those pages are often as much about sharing her thoughts and her life with readers, as they are about her desire to bear witness to her own experiences. In the Spirit has grown to be a private discussion; it is at once knowing whispers between sisters????????????and our brothers too????????????and a gentle reminder that we are securely in God's care. In the Spirit encourages us to cherish ourselves and one another ever more deeply; treat our children ever more tenderly; honor our health ever more vigilantly; and work for the recovery of our community unified, harmoniously and passionately. This book draws from the breadth of the writings Ms. Taylor has shared with millions of people through Essence. Though its audience is vast, her relationship with her sisters in particular is a deeply passionate and personal one. Together they have raised children and buried parents. They have watched cities drown and they have seen spirits rise up. They have lost some of their babies, but they have also been saved by some. Together they have renegotiated their faith, relationships and their way back to themselves and to God. Together they have ministered and been ministered to by the healing hands of love and forgiveness.

Men can feel the Spirit too!  Aug 20, 2008
I am thoroughly enjoying All About Love. I've decided to read it as a daily reminder of what's important. In a day and age of uncertainty it's nice to be reminded that we are spiritual beings having a human experience every day. Ms. Taylor`s willingness to share her learning process has opened new doors for me. Vulnerability in this case has lent itself to wisdom. So Men if you think that just because these are collections of Susan L. Taylor's words from Essence© magazine they're for women only - you will miss a wonderful opportunity to be reminded of your own Power and your ability to Live Fearlessly.
An inspirational classic for women and men alike!  Aug 8, 2008
You can read this one from the beginning or at any point within and you will find it worthwhile. Ms. Taylor speaks to us from the heart and from the the mind with wisdom and keen spirituality.
Taylor's "All About Love" Provides Harvest of Empowering Inspiration   Mar 16, 2008
When the NAACP in 2006 presented author and social activist Susan L. Taylor with its President's Award, the organization publicly acknowledged what readers of Essence® Magazine had been experiencing for nearly four decades. Namely, that Ms. Taylor is among the most effective, dynamic, and beloved human resources on the planet. In "All About Love"(Urban Books) a rich of harvest of writings from Taylor's "In the Spirit" column, it's easy to see why.

A collection of more than 80 empowering editorials and three bonus dialogues, "All About Love" is all about life as we know, live, dread, treasure, and live it. Unlike too many book collections of short essays or creative nonfiction, this is not one aimed at demonstrating the intellectual profundity or virtuosity of the author. These are the observations, emotions, realizations and affirmations by which generations of women--and sometimes men--have mapped out the course of their daily lives and established purpose for their existence. They address such down-to-earth considerations as "Family Affairs" and "Living Abundantly," but also tackle more elevated yet essential meditations on subjects like "Being Peace," and "Self-love and Social Action."

Ever a fearless witness to her life and times, Taylor notes in the introduction, "A Bridge of Light," that, "Human beings have made every corner of the planet a disaster zone, and human beings have the power and responsibility to clear and clean it up, set the Earth back on its axis. We are not small or powerless. We have the ability to transform our world. Our personal and collective pain, the disorder all around us, are calls to get up and get moving!!!"

Especially noteworthy in "All About Love" are the three "conversations" that comprise its closing epilogue. One is Taylor in dialogue with Oscar-nominated actress Ruby Dee; another with educator and activist Cornel West; and the third with the late master musician and spiritual instructor Alice Coltrane. Each subject combines the articulated light of her or his illuminated spirit with that of Taylor's to produce flashes of useful insight that expand into waves of applicable principles and awareness. Take, for example, Cornel West's response to Taylor when she asks him about the need for men to become more emotionally honest, intimate, and self-loving: "Most would rather languish in conformity, complacency and even cowardice. But what is life for but to learn to love and be free and courageous?"

At the end of February 2008, Taylor left her almost four-decade position as the creative passion behind Essence® Magazine to head the National Cares Mentoring Movement, an organization she founded as Essence Cares to help at-risk youth. As she journeyed from 1970 to 2008 toward that noble crossroad of change in her illustrious career, she became in 1999 the first African-American woman to receive the Magazine Publishers of America's Henry Johnson Fisher Award. In 2002, she won induction into the American Society of Magazine Editors' Hall of Fame.

In many ways, "All About Love" is another kind of award, an eloquent summation of a triumphant career in one of the most demanding professions around. In another possibly more significant way, it is an open letter of uninhibited love and intentional compassion addressed to the denizens of the world from the heart and soul of one of the great women of our new millennial times.

Excellent Words of Wisdom and Encouragement!  Mar 12, 2008
I truly loved this book by Susan Taylor and it is the second of her collection that I own. I bought it at a time when a health concern was surrounding my life. Her words served as wonderful words of encouragement and support through this difficult time. I whole heartedly recommend this book for any of you out there who enjoy reading affirmable text that is applicable to each one of our lives. Enjoy!
