It's an article of faith for reviewer

March 15, 2009

I found King's synopsis of Lobdell's book interesting right up to the point Ms. King turned from book reviewer to preacher in her last three paragraphs, ending with a prayer, "May we all find some light . . . etc."

I am not interested in King's religious views. I would like to have read more William Lobdell's. Why does his subtitle end with the phrase, " . . . and Found Unexpected Peace"? In what way did Lobdell find "validation for his "dark night" in Mother Teresa? Why was the title of the review "Living with a hole in his heart"? There was no discussion of this "hole" in King's review. I think the hole is in Heather King's perception of the nature of unbelief.
