Award-winning sports columnist Terry Pluto has another beat: Faith. Thousands of loyal readers regularly turn to his "other" column for a regular dose of down-to-earth spiritual inspiration. This book collects dozens of his popular essays about ethical and moral issues we all face in everyday life. Like getting along with our siblings. Setting a better example for our children. Listening better to our spouses. How money makes us do silly things. The lure of gossip. Feeling lonely. Giving in to anger. How we feel when our prayers go unanswered. Pluto writes from a very personal perspective, as when he discusses the vanity of his own approach to baldness, or reveals white lies he has used to make himself feel better, or describes the temptation to tell off his boss at work. This honestly humble approach to finding the spiritual in the ordinary gives Pluto’s writing broad appeal. “I don’t care if you are a Jew, a Christian, a Muslim, or a skeptic; there is a spiritual thirst in most of us,” Pluto says. “I try to write about God and us and what that means for our lives.” For a sportswriter who never thought he’d write about faith, Pluto has brought a great deal of meaning to the lives of his readers. This collection will serve as a great way for Pluto fans to revisit the many inspirations found in his writing--and to share them with a new audience.
