    how kind of you to again include me among your Gleanings. I’ve been enjoying visiting the other blogs and reading what you’ve gleaned from each one. A lovely buffet.

    That post about accidentally reading a Christian novel made me laugh and cringe and feel so bad for the blogger. Sounds like the problem with that book though is not so much religion but poor writing. God – if they exist – may be powerful but clearly not powerful enough to save a bad writer from excess and cliched lazy shitty writing. God helps the writers who help themselves!

      I loved the post so much. I still am of about six minds about it all. I think the problem is making “Jesus Saves” a plot twist—to those of us who aren’t Christina (or even “Christian”, I am just going to leave my typo there, okay?) this is is pretty shoddy device. Also, the discussion of religion has to have universality. “God” to the writer has to mean something to me too, even if it is not the same thing.
