Why do we exist? Where did we come from? How can one person matter? Dillard searches for answers in a powerful array of images. For the Time Being evokes the terrifying grandeur of all that remains troublingly beyond our understanding.

Donna Seaman

A spare yet exquisitely wrought narrative...by turns funny, flinty, and sublime...Dillard meshes the historical, the scientific, the theological, and the personal in a valiant effort to net life's paradoxes and wonders. —Booklist
