The God Who Weeps: How Mormonism Makes Sense of Life by Terryl L. Givens

Very thought-provoking. This was originally her idea, most of the preliminary work was hers, and she had it as an article before collaborating with ever-so-adored husband. Fiona is fiercely, frighteningly intelligent, every bit a match for Terryl, and though they may have to set me straight, I suspect that much as I adore them both, and I DO! I bought it, and I am only through the first half. But Julie is right. Just downloaded it.

Perhaps the authors thought that elements you mentioned were outside the scope of their approach. I also bought the kindle version. Wright who was also Harold Bloom. I can empathize with your faith crisis. However, I felt that the introduction to the book alone was worth the price I paid for the Kindle version. And I feel exactly the same about giving it to thinking non-members. Last night I had already created a mental list. I mostly just have very small chunks of time to read, which is why it usually takes a long time for me to finish any given book…….

Do you think it is worth purchasing and reading? What do you really think?

Julie, would this be a good pre-missionary book? At the age of , they may not themselves have grasped the beauty or depth of the tradition. Could this serve to open their eyes to that kind of thing? Or is it too much, too inaccessible, for a late teen? It is definitely not inaccessible. Ben S.
