Subject: I have just finished reading The Awful Truth. I could not put it down. I was raised in the Catholic church with all the guilt it entails. I just want to express that this book is the most open and truthful thing I have ever read. My father, a Deacon in the church claims to be too old to change his point of view and that makes me sad – he wouldn’t even look at the book. I am currently going through a lot of life changes and I just wanted Mr. Conway to know that his book has helped in ways I cannot explain. I don’t necessarily agree with everything he says since I consider my personal relationship with God to be a real and physical thing but I understand that some of the most fanatical “Christians” question their belief since they haven’t experienced this relationship.

 I just wanted to say thanks.
