Erin was giving a book reading when we first met, from her chapter in Talking Taboo: American Christian Women Get Frank About Faith.
I was in my final year at Duke Divinity School at the time; she was just a year out of the same program. We soon realized that we shared a number of things in common: we'd both recently traded a PR career for theology and we'd both lived in the Pacific Northwest (Erin works withParker Palmer and the folks at the Seattle non-profit Center for Courage & Renewal).
When I noticed Erin also had a book releasing in early 2015, I suggested swapping book reviews, crossing my fingers she'd think it was a good idea. She was generous enough to agree. Thanks, Erin.
