Fresh Air Books Releases Reluctant Pilgrim

Nashville, TN (RPRN) 08/20/10 — A Moody, Somewhat Self-Indulgent Introvert’s Search for Spiritual Community

 The author's [Enuma Okoro] 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. −Publisher's Weekly

 – If you sometimes feel lost on your spiritual journey, you’ll find a trustworthy companion in Enuma Okoro. Okoro’s first book, Reluctant Pilgrim, releases in September. Readers are sure to be captivated by this luminous, laugh-out-loud funny, and piercingly honest account of the author’s personal quest to find and savor the goodness of God. 

Okoro, a tea-drinking, purse-shopping, shaky follower of Jesus, wouldn’t mind meeting a guy who loves God and has decent hair. But after her father’s unexpected death, her grief seems to morph into the panicky feeling that God wants something more from her. Part Augustine, part Jane Austen with a side of Anne Lamott, Okoro’s book is daring, insightful, and a deeply moving field guide for the curious, the confused, and the convicted.
