TRAVELING MERCIES: some thoughts on faith
by Anne Lamott
pub. Anchor Books, (C) 1999, 275 pages

Comments: I first heard Anne Lamott at EC03. She was awesome (despite some apparent editing). Here's how she starts (from the Overture, page 3): "My coming to faith did not start with a leap, but rather a series of staggers from wht seemed like one safe place to another..." Anne's book is honest and a bit gritty at times--but honesty wins out over gritty, unless you're a separatist, a la Oberbrunner (see Journey Into Relevance).
