Belief that stammes

by Francesca on Oct 31, 2008

I had read a negative review of this book, and hoped it was written simply out of a secular bias. But I found it hard going. The merit of it to me, in spite of my boredom, was a glimpse into the emotional interaction of culture and religious belief. Ms Rice gives a rambling and impressionistic account of her New Orleans Catholic upbringing, her loss of faith (no wonder) and return to a Church that had altered radically since her departure from its religious and cultural environs. Sociologically, this could have been of interest, and the author is manifestly sincere and honest. And the way in which she, a person of manifest good will, embraces a faith that involves elements with which she is not in harmony is a testimony to her intuitive recognition of the loving God at the center of a world of belief.
