Item description for The Lady, Her Lover, and Her Lord by T D Jakes...

A noted pastor shares a message of hope and faith that empowers women to restore their relationships--with themselves, their men, and God--without the repercussions of the past.

Publishers Description
Some kids told lies to be special. Calvin told lies to be normal. The son of a missionary family, he looks forward all year to summer vacation in Portofino--especially since he'll once again have the chance to see his beloved Jennifer. But even in this seductive seaside town in Italy, the Beckers can't really relax. Calvin's father could slip into a Bad Mood and start hurling potted plants at any time. His mother has an embarrassing habit of trying to convert "pagans" on the beach. And his sister keeps a ski sweater and miniature Bible in her luggage just in case the Russians invade and send them to Siberia. Dad says everything is part of God's plan. But this summer, Calvin has some plans of his own. From the author of Saving Grandma, this delightful coming-of-age novel will bring a smile of recognition to anyone who's ever been embarrassed by their parents.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lady Her Lover And Her Lord?

Shaeffer does it again  Sep 12, 2009
Frank Shaeffer has written several books featuring his upbringig in a very Christian home. He has been very forthright in his unflattering description of the events of his childhood. I must also say he has done it in a very entertaining and real manner. I am there with him as his father falls into one of his dark moods or as his mother causes a public upset when she chooses to witness god at dinner. I'm glad I didn't live his life, but I'm glad he wrote about it and I was able to share his life through his writing.
Masterfully comic and captures growing up perfectly  Apr 22, 2005
As I was reading this book, and laughing out loud so often the folks on the bus I was on were staring at me, I thought back to when I was the same age as Calvin Becker. I too thought of the things that we did on vacation every year as rituals: the people we'd see only when at our family cottage, the things my dad and brother and I would do only when on vacation. It seemed like it lasted forever, although in retrospect it happened only a few times. My experience was near a Jewish socialist summer camp in Michigan, yet Schaeffer was powerfully able to evoke the exact same memories with his stories of a Reformed Presbyterian family vacationing in Italy in the 1960's. That tells you all you need to know about how universal his story is. For me, the background of a religious, proselytizing Protestant family in Catholic Europe was interesting and enlightening, but the tensions within a family as you are growing up happen to everyone. As many other reviewers wrote, I didn't want this book to end, and that a unique experience for me.
one of the best books I've read in a while  Jan 19, 2005
This book is excellent in all ways -- funny, interesting, quality character development. The creativity of Frank Schaeffer is amazing -- I had only known him previously through "religious" works. He is a talented author. As soon as I finished this book, I picked up the sequel, "Saving Grandma," since I didn't want the experiences of the Becker family to come to an end. Highly recommended.
Hilarious coming-of-age novel: Jesus against Hormones  Sep 19, 2003
A family of Christian fundamentalists vacation annually on the Italian Riviera, and their 10yo son, Calvin, has discovered his Hormones, with a capital H.
Dad, determined to convert European Catholics to his Holy Roller way of thinking, is sometimes a little, shall we say...unpredictable. Calvin spends a lot of his time trying to gauge Dad's moods. Calvin is left to ramble on his own a lot of the time, and in his explorations comes to discover the pleasures of alcohol and women. Watching as he tries to permit himself to enjoy the world without outright lying to his parents is hilarious and very touching. His `little thing' (a unique family euphemism, if ever there was one) develops a life of its own, and Calvin doesn't quite know how to keep it under wraps, especially when he's wearing only a bathing suit.
Splendid, all around.
Funny, poignant, evangelical memoir  Feb 26, 2003
Calvin Becker looks forward to vacationing in Italy with his family every summer: the weather is nice, the waters are great for scuba diving, and his best friend Jennifer is there too. There's a problem, though: his family is a Reformed Presbyterian family, missionaries in Switzlerland who have come from America to convert those poor, lost, Roman Catholic youth. His mother prays too long before meals to show that they are the light of the world, and gives the most embarassing talks about sex. His father gets into "Moods" and doesn't seem very happy most of the time. And his two sisters get on his nerves by being alternately sweet or sour, often emulating their mother's sanctimoniousness. What's a normal, healthy, adolescent boy to do on the beach with them around?

I laughed out loud so much when I read this book! I grew up as a conservative evangelical myself, and there is much I can identify with, especially all the cliche phrases and behavioral patterns endemic to fundamentalism. I'm told that this book is really a thinly-veiled memoir of Frank's experience with his own family--and his parents are among the most famous evangelical icons, Edith and Francis Schaeffer, so he is giving us a glimpse into what it might have been like growing up with them. The results are often funny, but not always pleasant--the mother, father, and sisters turn out to be human after all, with significant flaws and foibles. Despite this, Schaeffer's portrayal is largely free from mean-spiritedness, and is buttressed by some strong descriptive passages about the title location and what it's like to fall in love for the first time. Ultimately, though, this book stands out as a good example of how the scions of evangelicalism deal with their past, and gives outsiders a glimpse into a world that often seems strange and loony. As someone working through similar issues, I found it a good laugh and good catharsis.
