Years of focusing on texts, apologetics, history and cultural studies leaves one parsed, deconstructed and problematized to such an extent that one wonders if the natural by-product of all this study is not a deeper emotional attachment but rather an abject poverty of attachment: One wonders if indeed there is even anything at all to this God business. We enter seminaries, Bible colleges, rabbinical schools and departments of religion with all the verve and enthusiasm of the newly converted, anxious to pick apart esoteric questions of the nature and being of Christ, the impact of covenant and salvation history. I remember with a certain fondness my overwhelming thirst for all things from the biblical past and relishing the rehash of people and events like they were known to and lived by me. Yet, sitting in a biblical criticism class and hearing theories about human biblical authorship for the first time, another seminarian turned to me and whispered, "You know, we are all going to Hell for this. He didn't. He transferred soon after. I can only conclude that his faith was so assaulted by the threats from rationalism and textual study that further consideration was out of the question. But I have often wondered about my colleague's particular path, one that I would characterize as the path of least resistance. It cannot be better to seek comfort in a world where one's views are reinforced and unchallenged rather than enduring the slings and arrows of a world constantly at odds with belief, can it? The absolute irrationality of religion demands greater scrutiny as it straddles the tension of ambiguity in the modern world.

One eg assumes that Angel would be a man, not a woman. The author writes - a fine sleight of hand really - "First Angel had some shopping to do.

There was a good lingerie shop on Pueyrredon, expen Another gripping work by Sheldon of course. There was a good lingerie shop on Pueyrredon, expensive, but Neusa deserved the best".

How would the reader suss out here that Angel was actually referring to himself Yet from a critical point of view, the concept does not ring true. Neusa is presented as a very unattractive, illiterate dithering, quite foolish individual; yet in reality she is sophisticated, canny, quite a genius.

She also feels that it is harder to find a good doctor for a small Kansas town than an ambassador to a foreign country. When her husband suddenly dies in a suspicious traffic accident, Ashley accepts the President's offer in order to fill the void in her life.
