books!

81. The Gospel According to Sydney Welles by Susi Rajah

This is a very entertaining book about a woman who works at an ad agency hired to publicize the Catholic Church. I loved Sydney's voice and found her an engaging character. The book had a lot of the "chick lit" elements of a single woman with one eccentric best friend navigating the dating world. I liked the characters so much in this one, that it seemed fresh, as did Sydney's struggles with how to sell the Catholic Church, and questions of if we should be advertising religion. A good book!

Have you seen the Catholic ads for a being a priest that featured a Matrix-style priest? Very funny.
