Born into a devout Christian family, Betty Smartt Carter spent her childhood chalking Bible verses on the sidewalk and declaring that she would be a missionary. She wanted mystery, she wanted miracles! But as she grew up, the road became more difficult and complex. With relentless honesty and a good dose of humor, Carter takes us on her journey toward faith -- a journey full of tears and joys, setbacks and small triumphs, moments of grace and times of excruciating self-discovery. In recounting her life, Carter deals frankly with the question of suffering: "God's battering is not easy, his burning is not quick. Many a day I'd have preferred a nice aneurysm." But she reminds us that no matter how much pain or regret our lives may hold, no matter how little faith we have, there are two truths worth remembering: God loves us, and He's good.
A CANDID ACCOUNT OF A HEART YEARNING FOR GOD. In the spirit of Anne Lamott's Traveling Mercies, this memoir chronicles one woman's voyage toward faith. With unflinching honesty and wry wit, Carter describes the zealous faith of her childhood and her later struggles with depression, restlessness and obsessive behavior. A story of great pain and even greater hope, Home is Always the Place You Just Left will resonate with all those who have suffered in their search for God, and will come as a welcome companion to anyone searching for a faith of their own.
