PeaceBang: Barbara Brown Taylor's 'Leaving Church.'

PeaceBang reviews Barbara Brown Taylor's Leaving Church: A Memoir of Faith: "This is a beautifully written book, but as dressed up as it is with deep insights and memorable phrases, it's still just a book about extreme clergy burn-out."

And while I'm mentioning bloggers' book reviews, take a look at Chalicechick and Ms Kitty's reviews of pop novelist (and Unitarian Universalist) Laura Pedersen's so-so trilogy, in which there are apparently UU characters. The books are Beginner's Luck, Heart's Desire, and The Big Shuffle. I read Pedersen's first novel, Going Away Party, and didn't see anything in it to make me want to read more of her fiction. Much more interesting, however, is the fact that her publicist contacted bloggers (like Chalicechick and me) offering review copies.

Folks can see my concurring comments as I blogged on Taylor's book Oct. 2 at

I am going to be updating my book reviews from this fall soon too. It's been quite an interesting publishing year.
