really liked it
Read from January 26 to 28, 2010

A page turner for me.
I am a person who seems to not be able separate myself from a "divine presence", but at the same time I am so confused by faith and this presence that I often feel lost or tricked or at best drawn.
Taylor's journey through her faith and a life of being a "professional holy person" was close enough to mine to help me get clarity on the last few years of my journey. She is inside faith enough for me to feel connected but also outside "safe faith" enough for me to join her mystery.

I recommend it for those asking unapproved questions inside the christian context, but only expect insight related to journey rather than answers to such questions.
