All Out of Faith by Wendy Reed

Book Description

This title gives voice to a wide variety of Southern women's religious experiences. H. L. Mencken first identified the South as the "Bible Belt" in the 1920s. To be sure, religion shapes and defines even those southerners who don't think of themselves as particularly religious. Practically no one who grows up southern can escape being shaped, stimulated, harmed, or informed by religion and spirituality. But there is a wider variety of religious and spiritual experiences in the South than one might imagine."All Out of Faith" gives voice to southern women writers who represent a broad spectrum of faiths, Catholic to Baptist, Jewish to Buddhist, and points in between. These essays and stories depict women who have experienced spiritual struggles, awakenings, transformations, and rebellions.Frances Mayes and Barbara Kingsolver investigate the importance of place. Dorothy Allison, among others, writes of the transformative power of art. Lee Smith is one of several women who write of religious fervor. Vicki Covington and Mab Segrest describe their conflicts between faith and sexuality. Pauli Murray, the first black female Episcopal priest, and Jessica Roskin, who became a Jewish cantor, tell of remaining within their original religious tradition while challenging their traditional roles.
