Library Journal loves Kelly Barth's My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus

In a recent review, Library Journal had this to say about Kelly Barth's My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus -

"This charming memoir, Barth's first book, is an exemplary coming-out story as well as a wholesale indictment of the hypocrisy and false promises of many archconservative Christian congregations about sexuality–¬that love, when it happens between two members of the same sex, is a manifestation of broken "machinery in need of parts and service." Barth's recovery from self-loathing and anxiety is a very near thing, but this witty volume leaves her happily partnered and churched. VERDICT A lovely volume for readers who can't get enough Anne Lamott or Mary Karr, Barth's book is both revelatory and amusing."
