Whistling in the Dark: A Doubter’s Dictionary

Whistling in the DarkIn a companion volume to Wishful Thinking, Buechner takes readers on a wry and thought-provoking jaunt through the spiritual terrain of our everyday language.

“Compelling and imaginative … uncovers bright patches of light and discloses wry kernels of wisdom and insight.”–Chicago Tribune

“Whistling in the Dark is not so much a book to be read as savored. Buechner’s reflections and reminiscences are by turns moving, provocative, or fascinating—but always insightful. This could be called ‘devotional literature’ at its best. … I find myself wanting to have it within easy reach for frequent treats of stimulation and fresh perspective.”–J. Randall Nichols, Princeton Theological Seminary
