Reviews - What do customers think about Spiritual Lemons?

This book is hilarious  May 20, 2001
"Spiritual Lemons" is a discussion on eight Bible stories featuring women and deep, often, "unacceptable" emotions, such as jealousy, anger and shame. Rev. Brakeman's writing is incisive, interesting, and, often, incredibly funny. What a wonderful resource for women (and men!) who might think that to be Christian is to be condemned to eternal niceness. A thought-provoking and reassuring book, with the very reassuring underlying message that God can work even through those parts of ourselves that we do not like.
Thought-provoking, witty, and challenging!  Jun 19, 1998
Lyn Brakeman's book explores 8 biblical stories that revolve around women who struggle with strong emotional feelings including anger, envy, and shame. By using religious imagination the author helps to reveal theological truths about the nature of God and God's relationship to us. Some chapters are especially powerful in naming experiences that cause hurt and pain in our lives. Readers are prompted to review how they have responded to and incorporated the experience into their own lives.

I used this book to lead a weekly discussion group of women in my parish. It's style and content challenged a few of the more conservative women who attended, but more than anything the stories helped to bond the women together in faith. God is present in these stories, and they helped us find meaning.

The book contains suggestions for both personal prayer and reflection which help the reader get to the heart of the story, as well as suggestions for prayer rituals to use with a group. The rituals were a lovely part of our time together and helped to bring closure to each evening.

I would highly recommend this book, especially for small group discussions.
