Description - Dating Jesus by Susan Campbell
By the age of twelve, Campbell had been flirting with Jesus for some time-she went to his house three times a week, sat in his living room, listened to his stories, loudly and lustily sang songs to him. But when she professed her love for him through being baptized, her robe floated to the surface of the baptistery water and she began to question her fundamentalist Christian faith. Young Campbell wrestles with the questions that dog any young woman intent on adhering to a literalist religion, especially the ones that have to do with gender. She ultimately shows us what happened when she finally came to admit that in her faith, women would never be allowed a seat at the throne.
