Gooch’s quest—partly personal and partly investigative—took him to Chicago to read the mysterious Urantia Book- to Goa and La Jolla to experience the talks and treatments of Deepak Chopra- to Ganeshpuri and South Fallsburg, New York, to listen to the charismatic leader Gurumayi Chidvilasananda- to Bardstown, Kentucky, to observe the quiet solitude of the Trappists and to Dubuque, Iowa, to see the Trappistines- to Dallas to worship with the members of the gay congregation of the Cathedral of Hope- and to New York to talk with Muslims and Sufis.

As Gooch proceeded on this unique spiritual odyssey—from fringe to mainstream—he witnessed diverse movements and religions and their strong appeal to a broad spectrum of followers.Brad Gooch has written a revealing, richly detailed document of our time. In Godtalk, character, dialogue, and setting come together in an irresistible, fast-paced narrative that is both engaging and informative about the unexpected nature of spirituality in America today.
