This book is one of the oddest testimonies of faith I have ever read. It is even hard to explain why. I had to keep reminding myself that this was a personal life story, written in Anne Rices voice. Her thinking process was very unusually and so is her memoir. If you are Christian, who is not a Catholic, please understand if you read this book it is an autobiography. It is a wonderful that Ms. Rice is back in the fold, but in no way think that you are going to get a good insight into the teachings of Catholicism. That is what disturbs me the most about this book. I would not want Ms. Rice teaching basic fundamentals of faith to my child. I am not judging her level of faith or criticizing her as a writer, but she is very early on the road in her journey as a Catholic. I think, she needs to study the teachings of the Church and the Catechism with a learned, spiritually mature, Spiritual Director. As a Catholic I know where in the Bible the Churchs teachings and doctrines come. Rice on the other hand, rejects a number of the fundamental teachings of the Church, without knowing that they come directly from the Word. She does not seem to grasp the symbiotic relationship between the Word and the Eucharist. They are one in the same the person of our Lord, Jesus Christ. I am overjoyed that Ms Rice has developed a personal relationship with the Blessed Trinity. After all that is the most important part of being a Catholic, saying yes to God!It is always a blessing to the Body when one of our sisters returns to us. I pray for Ms Rices continued growth and for her relationship with Christ to blossom.
