Taylor describes a rich spiritual journey in which God has given her more questions than answers. As she becomes part of the flock instead of the shepherd, she describes her poignant and sincere struggle to regain her footing in the world without her defining collar. Taylor's realization that this may in fact be God's surprising path for her leads her to a refreshing search to find Him in new places. Leaving Church will remind even the most skeptical among us that life is about both disappointment and hope - and ultimately, renewal.

Worth the listen
I listened to Barbara Brown Taylor read her book, Learning to Walk in the Dark before I listened to this book. This one doesn't have as tight prose, but it's still good with lots of good stuff in it. Also, the reader was a little more saccharine? naive? than I prefer for the content, but that might just be because of how I expect that Barbara Brown Taylor would have read.
