  • Tried It and Left Mar 9, 2012
    by Dana C

    Author's experience with organized church. She graphically expresses her disillusionment with "official" Christianity, and her growth in relationship with God.

  • Good but not her best. Oct 27, 2011
    by Terry

    I enjoy Barbara Brown Taylor, have read other her books and heard her speak. While I enjoyed this book, I have to say it was not her best. It should have been titled, "Anatomy of a Burned-Out Pastor". Taylor's problem is a familiar one among clergy - self-care and boundaries. No one every survives in pastoral ministry without these two things or serves his or her people well.
    I was left wondering whether Taylor is not called to do what she and others like Frederick Buechner (who never served a parish) do best - WRITE! That she does very well, which is why I still recommend this book, despite its flaws.

    Leaving the Church is an honest look at how maturity leads to questions which lead to tough answers which lead to mature decisions about faith, God and belief.
