Listen to our interview with Leah
As a Yale graduate, Leah Libresco launched her writing career by blogging about science, literature, mathematics, and morality from a distinctively secular perspective. Over time, encounters with friends and associates caused her to concede the reasonableness of belief in God in theory, though not yet in practice. In 'Arriving at Amen', Libresco uniquely describes the second part of her spiritual journey, in which she encountered God through seven classic Catholic forms of prayer.
