Publisher's Description

Disillusioned, disenfranchised, and disinterested in anything churchy, Susan E. Isaacs knew of only one thing to do when she hit spiritual rock bottom at age 40. . . . She took God to couples counseling.
In this cuttingly poignant memoir, Susan E. Isaacs chronicles her rocky relationship with the Almighty--from early childhood to midlife crisis--and all the churches where she and God tried to make a home: Pentecostals, Slackers for Jesus, and the über-intellectuals who turned everything, including the weekly church announcements, into a three-point sermon. Casting herself as the neglected spouse, Susan faces her inner nag and the ridiculous expectations she put on God--some her own, and some from her "crazy in-laws" at church. Originally staged as a solo show in New York and Los Angeles, ANGRY CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD is a cheeky, heartfelt memoir that, even at its most scandalous, is still an affirmation of faith.

Editorial Reviews

"If King David were a woman, and were funny, he'd be Susan Isaacs. And the thing about this book is it surprises you. There are lines in it you won't see coming. You'll be handing this book to somebody else about a month from now thinking, Maybe this will help them understand me. You'll do that because it helped you understand yourself first."—Donald Miller, New York Times bestselling author of Blue Like Jazz
"Face it, folks, the church is made up of messed-up people all trying to deal with life. I appreciate writers like Susan who creatively face their issues with honesty and humor. ANGRY CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD is a really fun read."—Tony Hale, actor
"Susan's brilliant comic idea of taking God to couples therapy is a terrific framework for the story of her personal journey of faith."—Jim Gaffigan, actor and comedian
"Funny, biting, earthy and brilliant."—Publishers Weekly

    A very honest spiritual memoir

    This is not a neat and tidy spiritual memoir. For decades, Isaacs had an antagonistic relationship with God. Life wasn't going the way she wanted. She couldn't understand why God would be doing this to her. She is very open and honest in her frustration with God. Some Christians may be surprised by her language. I thought the sames kinds of things myself, however. I've just never had the nerve to write it down. Isaacs continues to pursue God, trying church after church. They all seemed to drive her crazy. She writes of her struggles with sex and her many failures. In the end she finds the God with Whom she was so angry. He hadn't changed. She had.

    This is a great memoir of honesty in her spiritual life. Even if you have not struggled with being angry at God, reading this book will help you understand those that do.
