The path to an intimate and mature relationship with God is oft circuitous. And when we fail we can make an unholy mess of things.
Ann takes us on her journey and brings us truth of the battlefield; her wounds, many self inflicted, give pause. Honestly, I'm not sure I could read her story if I wasn't a man of faith, because her brutal struggle hurts and weighs heavy on the heart.
The Old Testament is also brutal as is the New and Ann's story resonates with what I've seen in this world. Her honesty might just give caution enough to encourage wisdom. Hers isn't perfectly polished prose, no it's raw, conversational, and real.
With Utmost Respect,
Major & Mustang Hank Salmans,
This book I would have given three stars, except that it takes a lot of guts and moxie to "put it all out there" as she did. One of those stars is for the mouth opening bravery to put in writing what she did, particularly for a Christian audience.
One of the things I particularly enjoyed was the tendency for me to think one thing about her (usually negative, I must say) and then a sentence later, she "fesses up" and addresses the very thing that had irked me. That was quite cool.
On a more critical note, she does make many of the same theological mistakes that "modern christians" make (yes, that's a lower case "c"), but since she stands in a long line of those who do that, I don't hold that against her.
As a young (in terms of length of serious faith) Christian, it's easy for a Christian with more discernment to see through a lot of the problems she currently struggles with, as well as get a little bit of a smile from the "been there, done that" moments she describes. Even though her prose tends to glorify her sins and the book's overall tone belies a shocking lack of contrition, it is where she is, and it's well worth checking out whether you're a Christian believer or not.
"It's a train wreck!" as I often say, but in this case, with much brotherly love and affection for her and her struggles. But for every time you think about how she "shoulda had a V8 moment," she does it double to herself, making her far worse of a critic than anyone. We all do that, but she does it in a way that is pretty funny.
This is not a Kardashian or Pamela Anderson story, but rather real life struggles of a young-in-the-faith Christian who wants to improve herself, and maybe even us, too. It's brave, a quick read, and well worth your time.
