Item Description...
After more than twenty years of "diligent scribbling," author Brian Doyle, an award-winning Catholic writer and editor of Portland Magazine, collected over thirty of his essays and put them together in Leaping: Revelations and Epiphanies. From a series of seemingly incongruous musings, Doyle weaves a compelling tapestry of stories with spirituality as the common thread. Doyle writes eloquently about life and death, fear and faith, miracles and the mundane. In this Compilation of literary writings about Catholicism, his children, birds, and cars, Doyle powerfully captures the Catholic lay spirit. Also included is a poignant memorial to the victims of September 11. Recalling his past, celebrating his present, and looking to the future, Doyle reminds us that by noticing the mysterious cycle of life we become aware of the blizzard of blessings that surrounds us.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
It made me smile!  May 7, 2007
This is a book that brought back a great deal of memories for me. Brian's descriptions of his altar boy days, the priests, the tales of Garrison and Frank Rizzo sent me back to another day and time. I once again became that little girl in the fourth grade with an incredible crush (and a cracker jack ring). His own personal story of his pain as a parent dealing with his son's illness, to the joy of teaching a Sunday school class about faith, left me feeling that I wanted to hear more. Thanks, Brian, for reminding me of just what life is really all about! T.O'K.
Lost Memories of a former Alter Boy  Feb 4, 2004
While this book only had a brief chapter on the memories of this author and his experiences as an alter boy it brought back memories for me of similar early mornings full of dusty kneelers, bell ringing and fists full of hosts stuffed in your pockets. The true nature of this book is the spiritual journey a young man takes and how the things that were part of the formation of the individual shapes the man's belief system. As with all of us of that generation, as we age we become more aware of the really important parts of life. God, family and self are the relationships that are explored and defined through Doyle's eyes. His observations act as stimulus for further self examination of our belief system,

This is the third book that I have read by this author and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Witty!  Oct 16, 2003
I picked up this book because the cover intriqued me, and ended up loving the book! This book is quirky, creative, and honest.
