    Sentilles, you are a great writer. But this is not a good messag

    Sentilles, you are a great writer. But this is not a good message. Anyone can be thoughtful. And though it is famously said that breaking up is hard to do, it's easier than sitting with discomfort and making yourself vulnerable enough to change. If everyone but your spouse were telling you your spouse were unfaithful, would you so easily take their word for it? Or would you give your spouse the benefit of the doubt and do your own investigation? Truth is not found by making up a new truth. Truth is unchangeable. Truth is absolute. I hope those who have divorced God will let go of their doubt and rekindle the flame one day.

    Just finished reading "Breaking Up With God", about a seperation from God. In her previous book, "A Church Of Her Own", she examined the topic of female clergy by telling the stories of the women she interviewed. She did so very effectively, leaving us a new perspective.

    In this book she must tell her own story. To flesh out her relationship she needed to explore what she brought to the relationship, the nature of the relationship, and the fallout of the break-up. Again she does this by telling us stories. These stories hold our interest and bring to life Sentille's journey of faith. Although at times the stories may seem spurious, their relevance is made clear.

    "Breaking Up With God" illustrates the challenges of seeing the relevence of organized religion as recent generations have come of age. A theistic deity seems not only implausible, but also feckless. In our homes, coffee shops, and bars people will say of course God is not some being with a robe and flowing beard. However our public vocabulary still includes "God's will" and "God's love". These are not the traits of the deistic that many of us believe in.

    These are subjects often discussed by modern intellectuals with well-supported arguments. Santilles makes the issue visceral. With superb narrative, her story stands as an example of the same battle many are facing today.

    I Also Recommend:

    In pursuit of a just world

    In this thoughtful memoir, Sentilles chronicles her relationship with the God she comes to know as the constant companion of her inner life. Beginning with her early years as a child in church, and moving through her experiences as a college student in class, a young adult in charismatic fellowship, and a priest-in-training, Sentilles beautifully articulates the challenges of loving a supposedly loving God whose past and present are inextricably implicated in violence towards human bodies, non-Christian others, and the earth. Increasingly unable to live with this injustice, Sentilles rejects the God she has loved in search of a faith that will better express her passionate pursuit of a more equitable and earth-friendly human world. The courage with which she interrogates her beliefs is inspiring, as is her hope for the future. Kimerer LaMothe, author "Family Planting: A farm-fed philosophy of human relations"
