This wry memoir tackles twelve different spiritual practices in a quest to become more saintly, including fasting, fixed-hour prayer, the Jesus Prayer, gratitude, Sabbath-keeping, and generosity. Although Riess begins with great plans for success (“Really, how hard could that be?” she asks blithely at the start of her saint-making year), she finds to her growing humiliation that she is failing – not just at some of the practices, but at every single one. What emerges is a funny yet vulnerable story of the quest for spiritual perfection and the reality of spiritual failure, which turns out to be a valuable practice in and of itself.

“Jana Riess may have flunked at sainthood, but she’s written a wonderful book. It’s both reverent and irreverent, and it will make you want to become a better Christian — or Jew, or Muslim, or Zoroastrian, or Jedi, or whatever you happen to be.”
– AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically
