Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith
Anchor Books, a division of Random House, Incorporated, 2000 - BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY - 275 pages
Anne Lamott takes us on a journey through her often troubled past to illuminate her devout but quirky walk of faith. In a narrative spiced with stories and scripture, with diatribes, laughter, and tears, Lamott tells how, against all odds, she came to believe in God and then, even more miraculously, in herself. She shows us the myriad ways in which this sustains and guides her, shining the light of faith on the darkest part of ordinary life and exposing surprising pockets of meaning and hope.
