Christine M. Panyard thought she was studying Michelangelo and Renaissance art, but she was actually being moved towards God. The gothic cathedral is a metaphor for spiritual development in Stalking Michelangelo, Finding God. Her story began outside the church, where she was for many years. It takes the reader on a journey around and through the cathedral to the altar, much as she moved from being a lapsed Catholic to formation as a Secular Discalced Carmelite. Christine became an author and award-winning photographer on her way to God.
