More About Phyllis A. Tickle

Phyllis Tickle PHYLLIS TICKLE, founding editor of the Religion Department of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, the international journal of the book industry, is frequently quoted in print sources, electronic media, and innumerable blogs and web sites. Tickle is an authority on religion in America and a much sought after lecturer on the subject.

In addition to lectures and numerous essays, articles, and interviews, Tickle is the author of over two dozen books in religion and spirituality, most recently Emergence Christianity-What It Is, Where It Is Going, and Why It Matters, The Great Emergence, How Christianity is Changing and Why and The Words of Jesus, A Gospel of the Sayings of Our Lord. She is also the author of the notable and popular The Divine Hours series of manuals for observing fixed-hour prayer: The Divine Hours – Prayers for Summertime, The Divine Hours – Prayers for Autumn and Wintertime, The Divine Hours – Prayers for Springtime, Eastertide- Prayers for Lent Through Easter from The Divine Hours, and Christmastide – Prayers for Advent through Epiphany from The Divine Hours (Doubleday); The Night Offices from The Divine Hours and The Pocket Edition of The Divine Hours (Oxford University Press); and This Is What I Pray Today – The Divine Hours Prayers for Children(Dutton)

Tickle began her career as a college teacher and, for almost six years, served as academic dean to the Memphis College of Art before entering full time into writing and publishing. In September 1996 she received the Mays Award, one of the book industry’s most prestigious awards for lifetime achievement in writing and publishing, and specifically in recognition of her work in gaining mainstream media coverage of religion publishing. In 2007 she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Christy Awards “In gratitude for a lifetime as an advocate for fiction written to the glory of God.” In 2004, she received the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters from the Berkeley School of Divinity at Yale University. In 2009 she received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from North Park University.

Tickle serves now, as she has in the past, on a number of advisory and corporate boards. A lay eucharistic minister and lector in the Episcopal Church, she is the mother of seven children and, with her physician-husband, makes her home on a small farm in Lucy, Tennessee.

Phyllis Tickle currently resides in Lucy, in the state of Tennessee.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An amazing overview of theological discourse in America.  Sep 17, 2001
I am prompted to review this book because the only reader review rates this book so poorly. I read it several years ago and was very impressed with Mrs. Tickle's knowledge of contemporary religious discourse (printed, oral, and electronic). I found her material to be extremely well-documented and her prose style to be simple on first glance. However, her thoughts are complex and invite careful reading. Chapters were brief but so densely packed with meaning that more than one reading yielded ideas on several levels. I assumed that Mrs. Tickle is a Ph.D. of religious studies and teaches in a university or seminary somewhere. Only this year did I discover that she lives on a farm in rural Tennessee and is the mother of seven children. She has been a contributing editor in religion for Publishers Weekly for many years, and she has obviously done her homework. This is not a book for people who want an easy romp through some inspirational matter, but those who want to have an overview of much that is happening in America should give it a try. It looks like a simple text, but it is a rich field for the careful, thoughtful reader.
disappointing glance at significant subject  Oct 6, 1999
This book, by a religion editor who should have much to say, is an example of rambling impressionistic writing of the worst sort. A disappointing waste of time and money!
