Further Praise for Vintage Saints and Sinners:
"The winsome brilliance of Karen Wright Marsh's ability to encapsulate gorgeous little vignettes of history's greatest contemplative mystics and fierce justice advocates makes Vintage Saints and Sinners a timely work. From the most spectacular to the uttermost undramatic conversions, each hero and shero Karen introduces highlights an embodied example of vocational fidelity that is both inspiring and inviting."—Christopher L. Heuertz, cofounder of Gravity, a Center for Contemplative Activism, author of The Sacred Enneagram
"Righteousness, we know, is endlessly complicated. In Vintage Saints and Sinners, Karen Marsh shows that it's also a living process, a communal drama of joy and liveliness into which we're invited. With wit, care, and deep lyricism, Karen helps us to see that saints—who are also always sinners—are on our side. Where we are, they've already been. We get to meet their messy witness with our own. One day at a time."—David Dark, author of Life's Too Short to Pretend You're Not Religious
"This page-turning pilgrimage journal offers readers way-bread from—and for—the fallible and glorious communion of quotidian saints."—Susan R. Holman, author of Beholden, winner of the 2016 Grawemeyer Award in Religion
