From when she was a little girl, Dawn Eden Goldstein knew she wanted those things—that in them, somehow, she would find God.
But her life’s search led her away from the temples of her childhood Judaism to the music clubs of Greenwich Village, where she became an acolyte of a new religion: rock & roll. Over the years she earned renown as a rock critic and historian, moving among some of popular music’s biggest names, all the while straining to capture that transcendent love and beauty in their every note and lyric.
Yet her longing only deepened; the hole in her heart only grew. God’s voice was calling her, but first she needed ears to hear.
In Sunday Will Never Be the Same, Goldstein recounts her spiritual journey in beautifully wrought detail, mixing powerful accounts of trauma, healing, and epiphany with funny and poignant anecdotes from inside the music scene. It is the rare “conversion story” that delights as it inspires, amuses as it edifies—and ultimately lays before the reader a lived testimony to the transforming grace of Christ.
Dawn Eden Goldstein is an American Roman Catholic author and journalist who was formerly a rock music historian and tabloid newspaper headline writer. Under the pen name Dawn Eden, she has also written books on topics concerning faith, sexuality, and spiritual healing.
