About the Book:
The book is written more like a personal diary in a stream of consciousness manner more than a straight narrative style of book. It tends to wander from place to place and from time to time and lacks a certain focus. Ms. Sentilles is obviously a woman of intelligence and privilege given her education at Yale and Harvard. Yet she continued on in post graduate studies in divinity school and in preparation to become an Episcopal priest in spite of not fully understanding doctrine or having a true calling.
I understand her struggle to define herself and she does offer some interesting theories on religion but her main problem seems to be that she was not “special” to God. He did not answer her specific prayers. She found one church that she liked and when other churches were not the same she was somewhat disappointed that they were not the same.
I have come to the conclusion that my problems with this book are probably generational. I am significantly older than Ms. Sentilles and grew up in a very different time and with far fewer monetary opportunities. I commend her for sharing her story as it was not an easy path for her to travel. I just didn’t enjoy the trip with her.
