An interesting read, although Rice rambles and repeats herself at times. Rice, maybe best known for her Interview With a Vampire books, recounts her devoutly religious Catholic youth in New Orleans, her subsequent break with God, and then the resumption of her faith. I think it could have been written in half the words, but it is an interesting glimpse into 1950's Catholicism (I'll admit, I've always been fascinated with the pageantry of the Catholic mass). The last few chapters were the most thought-provoking to me, though -- I identified with Rice's separation of the "church" and "Christianity," and I was convicted by her conviction that our greatest - and perhaps most difficult - calling as Christians is to love everyone.Called Out of Darkness: A Spiritual ConfessionAnne Rice 3/5 stars
