For those eagerly
awaiting the latest addition to the series that began with God's Dog and
continued with Coyote Says, Webster Kitchell's work needs no introduction. Yet
newcomers will find it easy to join the philosophical clergyman and the minor
deity Coyote as they carry on a continued exploration of life's truths in Get a
God! Their adventures become a meeting ground where legend comes up against
twenty-first-century sensibilities. This whimsical approach to the questions
that need asking will both surprise and delight readers.
"Coyote is one of our most entertaining and enlightening Shadow figures,
always taking the uncomfortable view, showing the underside of things,
challenging the theologically correct, and being generally naughty but wise."
—Christine Robinson, Senior Minister, First Unitarian Church, Albuquerque,
conversations between a minister and a Native American demigod invite the reader
to reconsider the sorts of truths religions propose. I find in these stories
reflections of my own deepest ponderings. But just as I get a glimpse of
self-recognition either Webster or Coyote surprisingly shifts the focus so that
I see something new and different, often in a humorous, always in a delightful
light. You'll find yourself asking others to read these pieces and tell you what
they think. Webster is a serious trickster."
—Dale Arnink, Minister Emeritus,
Unitarian Church of Los Alamos, New Mexico
"Coyote and Web eat
donuts, drink coffee and drive through the desert with the top down as they talk
of Tillich, Whitehead, suffering, good and evil, God, the state of American
culture and politics, and much much more. Web Kitchell helps me remember what is
good about being alive. Coyote says this is the purpose of life."—The Rev.
Catharine Harris, Minister, UU Fellowship of Boulder, Colorado
