January 17, 1993 | Julia Cameron, Cameron is the author of "The Artist's Way," a book for those interested in exploring and expanding their creativity.
It is an irony that in contemporary American fiction, the theological search for meaning is under-represented and all but absent. We have Updike and . . . Wallace Stegner? As a society, we are profoundly and deeply divided around the question of religion. Our money is inscribed, "In God We Trust," yet we fight bitter battles over prayers in school and the right to choice.

Cathars. Albigensians. Heresy. The Inquisition. These words tap into some murky collective memory of a forgotten time of great violence. Until a few years ago, the story of the Cathars had been all but forgotten, save for a few academics who excavated and preserved their legacy and for the inhabitants of the Languedoc region of France, where the echo has lingered for centuries.

Do angels have feet? Teeth? Tears? Do they hover invisibly above, or walk among us disguised as humans? Are they capable of independent acts or are they commanded? Do they exist at all? And if so, would we, in our miasma of smog, traffic and information overload, recognize an angel if we saw one? In Los Angeles, where we talk of angels every time we mention where we live, do we ever stop to ponder the nature of the spirits whose name we so constantly invoke?

Sophy Burnham, author of "A Book of Angels" (May 1) tells of meeting angels and having her life saved by one. Welcome, Sophy . . . angels are alive and well and living in Los Angeles. A few years ago, my daughter and I were driving north on the Ventura Freeway. There was a tire on the road, and as I hit it (all four lanes were filled and there was no place to swerve) it caused the front right tire to blow out.

"Now we're in the midst of an angel movement," says Sophy Burnham, author of the nonfiction bestsellers "A Book of Angels" and "Angel Letters." No kidding: That light flapping you hear in the air is the sound of cash being counted. Tonight's "In Search of Angels" on KCET-TV Channel 28 is the second prime-time special in three months to address the phenomenon, following on the wing-tipped heels of NBC's "Angels" in May.

Barely two months after her death, Mother Teresa's "official" life story is already in print. But "Mother Teresa, a Complete Authorized Biography" (Harper San Francisco, 306 pages, $23) is not a speedy cut-and-paste job. Author Kathryn Spink first met her subject 18 years ago and started working on her book in 1991. She agreed to withhold publication during Mother Teresa's lifetime.
