From legendary character actor Stephen Tobolowsky—who currently appears on The Goldbergs, HBO’s Silicon Valley, and Norman Lear’s new One Day at a Time, author of The Dangerous Animals Club and The Tobolowsky Files podcast—My Adventures with God is a funny, introspective collection about love, catastrophe, and triumph, all told through the lens of his evolving relationship with the mystery that is “God.” As Tobolowsky explains, “It’s hard to believe in nothing. Even cats believe in suppertime. As much as we love certainty, we are often shaped by the invisible, the unexplainable—something we call faith. We are inclined to acknowledge the holy. Even if it is only a paper heart we find in an old suitcase.” My Adventures with God is a series of short stories exploring the idea that most people’s lives seem to fit into the template of the Old Testament. We all have powerful creation myths: tales of our childhood and family, our first battles won and lost. It is our Genesis. Then, like in the Book of Exodus, we go into slavery. Rather than building pyramids, we lose ourselves in fear and ambition—in first loves, first jobs, too many dreams mixed with too much beer. We eventually become free, only to wander in the wilderness. At some point we stop and proclaim to the universe who we are. This is our Leviticus moment. We reconcile what we thought we would be with what we have become. We often attempt a mid-course correction. Then, as in the Book of Numbers, we are shaped by mortality as we bear the loss of family and friends. Finally, we retell our stories to our children hoping to make sense of the journey, as Moses did in Deuteronomy. Tobolowsky’s stories tell of a boy growing up in the wilds of Texas, finding and losing love, losing and finding himself—all told through the prism of the Torah and Talmud, mixed with insights from science, and refined through a child’s sense of wonder. My Adventures with God not only shines a light into the life of one of America’s most beloved actors, but also provides a structure to evaluate our own lives and relationship with God.

Most of us consider ourselves busy. But you might want to rethink your definition after reading The Power of Desire by Gallina Binelli. What Binelli has accomplished in her lifetime and the impetus for her moving forward brings a whole new level to being driven. It's difficult to decide what is more astonishing - how she has tackled each obstacle in her path or the depth of her desire to know the divine force at work in her life and the world. Binelli has embraced many religions or spiritual guides in her life, with each serving a unique purpose for a period of time. Her journey began at the tender age of 12 when she opened herself up to a greater power as a way to cope with and navigate the trials of boarding school in a country far from her mother. Through the next eight decades, her power of desire drove her forward -- and continues to do so to this day. Don't be surprised if you find yourself on a new path following your own "power of desire" after reading Binelli's book.--Margaret Moses, Founder, Youth With Promise ***** The story is of a child left alone deprived of the love of a family, rebelled against fate and at the age of 12 questioned the Divine Justice. A meaningful encounter transformed the rest of her life. The experience of this period opened a world of adventurous challenges that gave courage and enthusiasm to go through seven religions and live in four continents . And eventually at the age of 92 write this story.

I have called my own book Adventures with God, and subtitled it Some of the Lord's Dealings with Francis Nigel Lee. Why? Because in it, I have tried to describe only those events I think disclose our gracious God's dealings with the unworthy sinner penning these lines. In enclosing several testimonials and references by my professors and employers and friends here within, I have done so only to try and show the great grace of God and the patient graciousness of those so testifying -- toward the deeply-flawed writer of this Introduction. Such kind testimonials have all been far more generous than this sinner could ever deserve.

Lake was originally from Ontario, Canada. He was from a large family, which was continually affected with illness. At the age of twenty-one, he became a Methodist minister; however, he chose to enter the business world instead of accepting a church ministry. Lake was a very industrious businessman and started two newspapers before beginning a very successful career in real estate. Early in his career, Lake's wife, whom he deeply loved, fell ill with a life threatening illness. Having a lifetime of suffering and bereavement behind him, he refused to accept this. He took the radical step of taking 'his brother who had been an invalid for 22 years to Chicago see John Alexander Dowie . In a matter of just moments after healing ministers laid their hands on him, he was healed -- he got up and walked out! Next, the Lakes took their 34-year-old sister who was dying from breast cancer. She had been operated on five times and had to be carried on a stretcher. She too was healed!

'In the title story of [The Adventures of God in His Search for the Black Girl] the main character, God himself, expresses a taste for writing that's sophisticated, stylish, literary. The words apply very well to [Brigid] Brophy's own best work.' New Republic 'What we have here is more common in England than America: reading that's at once very light and very intellectual. Consistent with her commitment to artifice and the rococo, Brophy believes in play... [She] is liveliest when speaking-or making the illustrious dead speak-of the life of art, of literature, music, architecture, which she thinks about a lot and knows a lot about.' Washington Post 'Tasty and nutritious... generally wise and witty... full of game-playing... Brigid Brophy remains a good though very British writer-balanced, erudite, sensible, unsubmissive to shrill sociological shibboleths, above all unscared.' Anthony Burgess, New York Times Book Review
