Books about people finding faith can be either annoying or compelling. I’ve rarely found a middle ground with such things. Joan Ball’s Flirting with Faith: My Spiritual Journey from Atheism to a Faith-Filled Life (amazon affiliate link) is the latter. It was a great story of an imperfect person finding a strange-but-compelling link to her faith. It has notes of Anne Lamott, or rather, that’s pretty much the person we non-religious readers can think of at times like this. It’s on the same bookshelf as Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz.
It’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Me? I found it an interesting read and I appreciated the experience of reading it. Here’s a quick review.
If you want to read Joan’s experiences with faith, you’ll find the journey interesting and potentially rewarding.
