"Johnson takes an unflinching look inside her own heart [and]...opens the window on a horizon of spiritual questions." --The Christian Science Monitor
"An Unquenchable Thirst is a candid, generous, and profound spiritual memoir that deserves a great deal of thoughtful discussion." --Anne Rice
"A heartfelt, personal story of the gradual awakening of a woman who comes to see that preferring the 'human to the perfect' does not alienate her from authentic spirituality but allows her to live more fully."
