"Sarah Sentilles relationship with God was not a casual one. When it began to unravel she was in the ordination process to become an Episcopal priest. She was a youth minister at a church in a suburb of Boston and a doctoral student in theology at Harvard. You might say they were engaged and that the wedding was all planned- the church reserved, the menu chosen, the flowers arranged. Calling it off would be more than a little awkward. But in fact, it was the studying of the religion she'd been raised on and believed whole-heartedly that broke the camels back. One day she woke up and realized... it was over. In Breaking Up With God, Sentilles takes a striking look at how deep our ties to God can go, and how devastating they can be to break. Not unlike a divorce, she had to reorient her life, find new friends, and face a future that felt darkly unfamiliar. But the book is also ultimately a love story, about descending to a deep place, what was lost on the way down, and then, about what was found at the bottom. It's a book that speaks to the many people asking what happens when institutional religion stops working for them, and shows them a new way of being in the world"-- Provided by publisher.
