Publisher’s Weekly Review of “Reluctant Pilgrim”

Reluctant Pilgrim: A Moody, Somewhat Self-Indulgent Introvert’s Search for Spiritual Community
Enuma Okoro, Upper Room/Fresh Air, $17.95 (192p) ISBN 978-1-935205-10-4
A woman struggles to find her place in the Christian community in this elegant and witty memoir. Okoro is deeply devoted to God–trouble is, she’s never felt comfortable in her worship environment. As a woman of Nigerian heritage who was raised both Catholic and Anglican, her personal faith is never fulfilled by worship. She longs to belong to a loving, empowering church, but as she grows in her faith, she also grows more distant from organized religion. Although the author admits that there is nothing remarkable about her life story, she hopes her spiritual journey–and her strengthened relationship to God–will inspire others to never stop searching for their Christian home. Okoro’s memoir echoes the pathos, joy, and humor of Elizabeth Gilbert in this theological quest to find meaning in worship and Christian community. The author’s clever and poignant writing keeps readers enthralled at her every triumph and personal trial, and it speaks to anyone who’s struggled to reconcile faith and ways of worship. (Oct.)
