Praise For Now and Then

“Graceful in story and insights.”
-Los Angeles Times

“Candid... wistful...breathtaking images.”
-Christian Century

“Strikes to the heart…Unpreachy meditations on life and Christianity at its most profound.”
-People

“Buechner writes better than almost anyone. This book and its companion, The Sacred Journey, reduce and clarify the who and what and why of his whole life to something not unlike the palm-sized egg of crystal. Deep within it, as we read, the sun shines and the constellations rove.”
-James Merrill, author of Changing Light at Sandover

“Buechner is a worthy member of the great prose stylists: Pascal, Newman, and Merton, who have harnessed their art to a passionate religious faith.”
-Louis Auchincloss, author of The Recor of Justin and The Romantic Egoists
