Selection of her essays. Agree that the highlight is the section on the priest.

Highlight is a review of Teilhard de Chardin's work and contributions.

Slim, but dense new collection of the great Annie Dillard's essays. The subtitle says "Narrative Essays Old and New," but all but one brief essay come from other books. Nature, spirituality (in a non-cheesy way), and perception are her enduring themes. This is probably the best single volume introduction to her work and will give the reader a good sense of which books to read next ("Pilgrim at Tinker Creek" for example.).
