I am not going to give any stars to this book because I found it very conflicting. Although a compelling story, I am not sure why anyone would want to read about something so painful and horrific. I tend to inhabit the books that I read, so this one ...more

For the most part, an enjoyable read. I could have done without so much coarse language, but I guess that is her "girl from Boston" schtick coming out. If you enjoy her humor, you will like this book. I always thought that I liked Poehler better than ...more

Søren Kierkegaard
“The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly.”
Søren Kierkegaard, Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard

Søren Kierkegaard
“The matter is quite simple. The bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly. Take any words in the New Testament and forget everything except pledging yourself to act accordingly. My God, you will say, if I do that my whole life will be ruined. How would I ever get on in the world? Herein lies the real place of Christian scholarship. Christian scholarship is the Church’s prodigious invention to defend itself against the Bible, to ensure that we can continue to be good Christians without the Bible coming too close. Oh, priceless scholarship, what would we do without you? Dreadful it is to fall into the hands of the living God. Yes it is even dreadful to be alone with the New Testament.”
Søren Kierkegaard, Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard

Søren Kierkegaard
“I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations — one can either do this or that. My honest opinion and my friendly advice is this: do it or do not do it — you will regret both.”
Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life
