Does This Church Make Look
I picked up this book because I loved Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, and expected it to be, as second books often are, not as good as the first one but with a few funny bits to make it worth buying. I wasn't disappointed; Her descriptions of Mitch rival those of her mother in the first book - character sketches that are so good you feel like you know and love the person as much as she does. Even when dealing with breast cancer, her off-kilter humor just slightly this side of the line of tastefulness, is honest and real. It reminds me a little of Anne Lamott and Kelly Corrigan and Anne Tyler.
I think what I liked the most about this book is that not very many people understand what it is like to be a Ph.D. raised as a Christian literalist, then skeptic and trying to find a way back when the whole Christian thing seems patriarchal, homophobic, and ridiculous.
