And Live Rejoicing: Chapters from a Charmed Life — Personal Encounters with Spiritual Mavericks, Remarkable Seekers, and the World’s Great Religious Leaders
by Huston Smith with Phil Cousineau
At age ninety-three, spiritual trailblazer Huston Smith takes readers behind the scenes of his near-century of adventurous seeking. Few have done as much as Smith, who was born to missionaries in China in 1919, to explore and share the world’s religious and spiritual traditions — and none have done so with such accessibility, wonder, and delight. Here, in the company of fellow avid seeker Phil Cousineau, Smith looks back on his extraordinary life, describing riveting scenes from around the world (from small-town revival meetings in the rural Midwest and Native American sweat lodges to India, Africa, Tibet, and Japan) and magical encounters with unforgettable characters (including Pete Seeger, Martin Luther King, Jr., AA cofounder Bill Wilson, Joseph Campbell, and Reuben Snake). He also — with undiminished enthusiasm and eloquence — looks forward, inspiring readers to not just seize the day but seize it rejoicingly.
