Book cover: Holy Nudges by Marguerite Reiss Kern Holy Nudges
Bridge-Logos Co. (formerly Logos Inc.) 1976

"Holy Nudges" Bridge-Logos Co. (formerly Logos Inc.) 1976
Newly divorced, Marguerite Reiss and her youngest son set off on a 17,000-mile faith pilgrimage. After selling everything they couldn't cram in the car, they left nothing behind, not even a mailing address. With only $400 to their names, they headed west. This collection chronicles one Quaker's inner dialogue with God during a journey that taught her to listen for "holy nudges."

What others say:

"These epigrammatic jottings of Marguerite have spontaneity, are never labored or preachy ... free of self-consciousness and are not contrived. The language is pungent, sometimes astringent. John R. Yungblut, former instructor Quaker Center for Study and Contemplation, Pendle Hill, Wallingford, PA

"Nudges crackles, chafes and cuts, but most of all, it cleanses." Sam Perdue, former editor Columbus Citizen-Journal, Columbus, OH

"Holy Nudges is an honest, often painful but insightful account of one person's journey to enlightened Christian living." Dr. W. Hugh Missildine
