Right-winger Loves Anne Lamott

As I read the previous reviews, I thought it important that you hear from 'the other side.' I am a hard-core conservative, evangelical Christian pastor. I love reading Anne Lamott's personal journey books. She is funny, charming, thought-provoking, and sometimes downright irritating. But she makes me wonder if maybe what endears us to God is not our perfection, but rather our imperfection. Perhaps God loves me because of, not in spite of, my warts and blemishes. I don't often agree with her politics, but I adore her heart.

Blackbox Warning: Whiny complaints posing as reflection

I absolutely LOVE Anne Lamott. I did NOT love this book. Ususally funny and insightful, this attempt was a departure from her usual writing - whiny, complaining left-wing rhetoric. Unless you hate (her words, not mine) President George Bush and love to hear him slammed repeatedly - and I do mean repeatedly - ad nauseum, in fact, you may find this book shallow and downright boring. I got the fact that she hates the president after about the 100th reference to it - enough already!!! Even the stories, few though they may be, that didn't deal directly with hating the president, were woven with her distaste for the man. Isn't there anything else going on in the world, in life, to comment on? While I appreciate freedom of expression, this would have been infinitely more interesting had she expressed something beyond political opinion - over and over.

    Yes, Disappointing

    This is the only Anne Lamott book I have read and I won't buy another. There were amusing moments but though I am not a Bush fan I am disappointed by the hatred she expresses over and over. How can a professed Christian be so mean spirited?
