Borg, Marcus; THE HEART OF CHRISTIANITY

Leaving Church: A Memoir of Faith
by Barbara BrownTaylor
HarperCollins Publishers,251 pages, paperback, c. 2006, $14.95

Annie Dillard has said that Barbara Brown Taylor's writing
is "wonderfully intelligent, moving, and direct." Now, in the tradition of the writings of
Kathleen Norris and Anne Lamott, Taylor gives an account of her journey. From city to
country, from full-time parish minister to college professor, from urban dweller to part-time
farmer, Taylor discovers that life with God entails "a wondrous uncertainty" despite our best
laid plans. After ten years in a big urban church, Taylor arrives in Clarkesville
(population 1,500) thinking her dream has come true. And it has. But five and a half years
later, Taylor realizes that in order to keep her faith she must now leave the church--that,
in fact, God is leading her into a new direction, one she could not have imagined when she
was first ordained. Anyone who has experienced doubts about his or her chosen vocation, or
those drawn to worship God in a community but who have a hard time finding their place in
church, will find a kindred spirit in Taylor.

"I cannot overstate how liberating and transforming I have found Leaving Church to be."
--Frederick Buechner, author of Beyond Words
