Summary: All That's Holy is a new twist on an age-old search -- a spiritual road trip that chronicles both a personal pursuit of religious identity and meaning, and an outward-looking exploration of the varieties of American religious experience. From big cities to small towns, in prisons, monasteries, synagogues, and street corners, Tom both seeks out and stumbles upon people whose faith is more than it seems on the surface. Buddhists and Baptists, Muslims and Mormons, Pagan
s and Pentecostals -- Tom's conversations about faith and doubt weave together a poignant, memorable tapestry of American spirituality.

With the country as his classroom, Tom sketches a lively, funny, and evocative portrait of how people live -- whether they see themselves as spiritual or religious, why they've left (or remained in) the religious communities of their upbringing, and how they negotiate the tensions of living in an American culture at once highly secular and deeply religious. By the end of the road trip. Tom learns there's no place like home: a journey conceived to learn about the spiritual lives of others leads him to a newfound understanding of his own.
