This is awesome. Been wanting to pick up Priestdaddy and also struggling with my own religious views. Your connecting of the two makes me want to read the book all the more.

Samantha Hunt talks about "oracle books" (books we turn to when we are seeking clarity or direction or insight) and I wonder if she's aware of this practice of sacred reading. Her book The Dark Dark comes to mind as an oracle book to sacred read. Also, Moby-Dick, a book I've read many times and enjoy new gifts from every time. I know exactly which part of the book I would turn to for this exercise— the part where Ishmael imagines what it would be like to sink to the bottom of the ocean! I'm going to go try it!
