“I was raised Lutheran: Bible-believing, Jesus-loving Lutheran. But as an adult I tried everything: Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Rock ‘n’ Roll Slackers 4 Jesus, Actors for Yahweh. Then I said, ‘Screw it’ and became a drunk and a slut. Well, a Lutheran slut–I slept with only two guys. Then I got sober and into AA, where they said I could pick whatever god I wanted. But I didn’t pick God; God picked me. I’ve known Him as long as I can remember.”
Disillusioned, disenfranchised, and disinterested in anything churchy, Susan E. Isaacs knew of only one thing to do when she hit spiritual rock bottom at age forty: She took God to couples counseling.
In this cuttingly poignant memoir, Susan chronicles her rocky relationship with the Almighty. And what begins with professional and personal heartbreak quickly snowballs into a middle-class white girl’s Dark Night of the Soul.
