Summary: Snarky and sometimes sarcastic, Angry Conversations with God: A Snarky but Authentic Memoir, follows the life of aspiring actress and creative-type Susan as she tries to live her dreams, find love, and figure out what in the world God wants her to do so he will give her a life worth living.
Review: For the life of me, I do not understand why there are so few Christian memoirs. I don’t mean biographies. I’m talking about the genre of memoir. The genre that doesn’t so much celebrate the grand achievements of a person, but rather focuses on the everyday moments of a life which we all can relate to. Angry Conversations is such a book.
Susan B. Isaacs does not shy away from bearing her soul, her mistakes, her hurts and pains. What’s unique in Angry Conversations, is the addition of witty and laugh out loud humor.
Isaacs also takes us into her marriage counseling sessions with God.
That’s right, in the story, Susan is so disgusted with God that she walks into a counselor’s office and asks for marriage counseling for her and God. What follows is a gradual shift of perspectives of who God is in Susan’s mind. It’s an amazing transformation worth the read.
I deeply appreciated the candor of this book. The journey. And the honesty that even threw out some off-color language (vulgar, not profane).
I highly recommend this book and I’m thrilled to see a well-written memoir from an open and honest Christian.
Rating: 5/5 (I loved it)
