Providence is Quinn's fascinating memoir of his life-long spiritual voyage. His journey takes him from a childhood dream in Omaha setting him on a search for fulfillment, to his time as a postulant in the Trappist order under the guidance of eminent theologian Thomas Merton.  Later, his quest took him through the deep self-discovery of psychoanalysis, through a failed marriage during the turbulent and exciting 60s, to finding fulfillment with his wife Rennie and a career as a writer. In Providence Quinn also details his rejection of organized religion and his personal rediscovery of what he says is humankind's first and only universal religion, the theology that forms the basis for Ishmael. Providence is an insightful book that address issues of education, psychology, religion, science, marriage, and self-understanding, and will give insight to anyone who has ever struggled to forge and enact a personal spirituality.

Daniel Quinn was born in 1935 and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. He graduated from Creighton Prep and attended St. Louis University, the University of Vienna and Loyola University of Chicago. Quinn worked in educational and consumer publishing, holding editorial positions with the American Peoples Encyclopedia, the Greater Cleveland Mathematics Program, the Encyclopedia Britannica Educational Corporation, Fuller and Dees Publishing and the Society for Visual Education. He is best known for his award-winning novel Ishmael (1992), which is about a gorilla able to telepathically communicate, but he has written other novels as well as short fiction.
