    One thought on “Faith, Interrupted: A Spiritual Journey

    1. Connie on said:

      I enjoyed this book but have some beefs with it. First of all, the title and subtitle make the book sound wholly like a memoir about faith and doubt, yet Lax takes almost 198 pages to begin discussing his doubts! I kept wondering when he was going to start talking about them. He had mentioned a few times that his faith was naïve and untested, but he didn't begin exploring his doubts until then. Also, he went on and ON about things completely unrelated, like the Vietnam War and what his friend d [...]

      This was such an interesting book. The author was the only child of an Episcopalian minister who was raised in a healthy happy environment in southern California during the 50's/60's. It is so rare to read the story of someone who had a happy childhood and young adulthood. During the Vietnam war he joined the Peace Corps to avoid the draft and when he returned,after 2 years, he still faced the draft. He spent a long time dedicating himself to the project of convincing his draft board that he was [...]

      Eric Lax's book offers a rich, first-person trip through recent American history -- the post-war expansion of California, Dr. King's civil rights work, the Vietnam War, up to 9/11 . The story is shaped by Lax's life as a devout Episcopalian clergy kid.I was glad to learn about the author's father, a priest, and mother. Much of the book focuses on Lax's long relationship with his best friend, Skip. Skip's war service and faith life are a strong contrast to the author's. Lax's rich description of [...]

      Eric Lax's memoir of religious upbringing in 1960s California takes a complex turn in the advent of the Vietnam War. While he follows the path of conscientious objector, his close friend, Skip, ships overseas. Lax chronicles both of their stories, as he travels to Micronesia with the Peace Corps, and Skip rises in the ranks as an expert mine tracker. Lax's riveting account of Skip's life in Vietnam nicely shows off his talent for biography. Ultimately, Skip lands in the clergy, while Lax struggl [...]

      Eric tells of the faith he learned from his father, and embraced - and then a different understanding of Christianity that he saw in his best friend - and how he ended up not being able to emotionally connect to either of their faiths as he reaches middle age and beyond.

      Very interntaining, taking it slow - lots to think about - hitting home with me - Lax is about the same age as me, went throught alot of the same things, faith, college, the war.
