Product Description

Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. "Next thing you know, I was on a quest for something I could really believe in. I traveled to places like Bhutan, Ecuador, and my local Starbucks looking for answers. Would I embrace Buddhism? New Age pseudo-science? Was I a freak for feeling the way I did, or were there other people out there just like me? I was grappling with serious questions. But, somehow, a lot of the things that were happening to me seemed, well, funny." Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith. Grappling with the seeming contradictions in Adam and Eve, Noah, the Ten Commandments, and even the teachings of Jesus - and trying to understand the Bible's messages about morality, family values, and human suffering while faced with door-knocking Mormons and wise-cracking priests - Sweeney takes listeners on her very personal journey from God to "not-God". This performance was recorded on November 19, 2005, at the Ars Nova Theatre in New York City.

Review

"Searing and bracingly funny... "Letting Go of God" is refreshingly unrancorous, lucid and, yes, inspirational. Ms. Sweeney may not believe her audience has spirits to be moved, but that's certainly how it feels." --New York Times

"Julia Sweeney's brave, hilarious, moving new show "Letting Go of God" is a gale-force breath of fresh of fresh air into the mostly politic dialogue about religion in our time." --Los Angeles Times

"An excerpt of this show is the single most popular story we've ever put on our show in over ten years on the air. Somehow, against all common sense, Julia is making something funny that has no business being funny. So buy this CD, if you dare." --Ira Glass, This American Life
