A memoir of faith struggle and abidingIn this sequel to her popular memoir Girl Meets God, Lauren Winner explores the theme of abiding in God, especially when, after her divorce and feelings of failure, believing is not as easy as it had once been. In the American Church, we have a long tradition of telling spiritual stories that culminate in conversion, in the narrator s joining the church, getting dunked in the waters of baptism, getting saved. Here s a better question than why did you become a Christian. Why are you a Christian this morning? Why are you a Christian this week? After a failed marriage and bored with God talk and Bible reading, the author discovers all the ways she is maintained, held, and even healed by God s people, God s church, and spiritual surprises. Winner discovers that much of Christian literature is, essentially, the case for choosing the Christian life. But she found few sources for what she needed: a spirituality of maintenance. And that is what she set out to do.
