Agnostic Holidays: Green With 'Spiritual Envy'?

Journalist Eric Sevareid had a nice phrase that might be applied to many agnostics. He once wrote, "I hope that I have not only the courage of my convictions, but of my doubts."

Michael Krasny has a new book that tries to describe the inner terrain of agnostics who crave spiritual lives, but don't necessarily find them in religion. The book is called, Spiritual Envy: An Agnostic's Quest. It just might offer comfort for those who wander during the holiday season.
