Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis

Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis - Lauren F. Winner Winner found God and related her experience of discovering God and converting from Judaism to Christianity in Girl Meets God. She thought finding God was a done deal, that she was finished with struggle.Then she divorced her husband and found that God was gone. Winner was bereft, filled with anxiety, filled with depression and fears. She felt abandoned, alone. She did not know what to do.She began to do what she does best: she researched others who felt they had lost God and she talked with people about losing God and she began to write about it and think about it. And somehow she found God again in the middle of all the struggle and she realized this would be something she would deal with every day of the rest of her life. Winner is smart and soulful and funny and poignant. I loved reading this book and I imagine that I will read it again one day. I recommend it for all of us who struggle with our faith (and that is all of us, I think).
