This review is from: Christian Atheist: Belonging without Believing (Paperback)
This book has had a profound effect.
Having been Catholic convent educated from age 5 until 18, I, like so many others, have lived with an uneasy conscience all my adult life.
The dogmatic catholic education, made one fearful of questioning anything to do with religion; and when in later life this irrational fear was disposed of, and I became free to think for myself,I felt that 'not belonging' to any particular religion or faith group precluded me from any pleasure gained from the tranquil atmosphere of architecturally beautiful churches, and enjoying church music and art.
I feel liberated now to enjoy Evensong at a nearby cathedral, without any sense of guilt! Guilt, of course, being one of the predominant emotions remaining from my Roman Catholic upbringing.
