Item Description...
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.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A New Friend for your bookshelf  May 16, 2003
I would reccommend this book for anyone in their 20's or 30's especially, anyone who has ever felt alone, anyone who has ever almost wanted their parents to catch them doing something they shouldn't - just so they could talk, and anyone who has ever asked "does God even care that I exist?"
Betty Smartt Carter has my respect and admiration for sharing so courgeously! This book deserves to be read! I wish I was rich enough to stand on a street corner and give copies away! Don't miss it.
I can't say enough  Apr 17, 2003
This is a book that I would recommend to just about anyone. Not only is Betty Carter down-to-earth, she is incredibly funny! I don't normally laugh out loud while reading, but several times I found myself shaking in my chair trying to contain my laughter.

Her honest account of her own struggles proves that there is hope for all of us.
