When Quaker Scott Russell Sanders was four, his father held him in his arms during a thunderstorm, and he felt awe-"the tingle of a power that surges through bone and rain and everything." He writes, "The search for communion with this power has run like a bright thread through all my days." a Private History of Awe is an account of his search, told as a series of dramatic, spiritually charged episodes: his early memory of watching a fire with his father; his attraction to the solemn cadences of the Bible despite his frustration with Sunday-school religion; his discovery of books and the body; his mounting opposition to the Vietnam War and all forms of violence.
