9780826491466: Lapsed Agnostic

Irish Times columnist and former partner of Sinead O'Conner tells the story of one man's journey from belief to un-belief and back again.

John Waters is known for being the most astute and perceptive commentator for The Irish Times where his regular column has a huge following, and for his championing of fathers' rights stemming from his own custody battle. He was born in the West of Ireland in a rural traditional community where the catholic religion was the air that they breathed. Disillusioned with Irish society and the church scandals, he abandoned the idea of becoming a priest. He took to the rock and roll life, if not its lifestyle, as a kind of surrogate vocation, moving into music journalism and eventually finding his way to Dublin. In 1991, he published a bestseller called Jiving at the Crossroads.

Lapsed Agnostic tells the story of one man's journey from belief to un-belief and back again. In the style of Jiving at the Crossroads, Waters explores his own spiritual and religious adventure and observes how this has been echoed in our contemporary society.

Review:

Title mentioned. (Publishing News)

Edited extract in Tablet, 26th January 2008 (The American Spectator)

Interview with John Water's and Ed West in Catholic Herald, 18th January 2008 (The Catholic Herald)

'an eloquent, honest and deeply reflective book...[Water's] is always aware of the social context of his journey, and the book presents a critique of both the traditional model of Irish Catholicism and the secular social model in evidence today.'Teresa Whitington, The Irish Catholic (Teresa Whitington, The Irish Catholic)

"The author presents with courage, honesty and, perhaps, quite an amount of pain; issues that maybe modern society in Ireland is loath to confront...He encourages leaders and especially Church leaders to be more honest and courageous in proclaiming Christian teaching and values. Lapsed Agnostic makes compulsive reading; it will be particularly challenging to Mr Waters' own contemporaries who may face the same questions that he did."
Leo Sheridan, Africa

Title mentioned in article about author in Hot Press, 2008.

"Lapsed Agnostic is a provocative read...it'll make you think until your brain sweats." Reviewed by Yvonne Nolan in Irish Times, 2008

'Lapsed Agnostic does not disappoint ... a fascinating and inspirational read of one man's journey and relationship with God.' Irish Post, June 2008

"I found this an extremely depressing book. If I believed that this is the only way forward I would cry for the bleaknessof our future. There is no joy in this book, no charity, no peace. I suspect liberal outrage is the desired response , but really it's just sad."News letter (northern Ireland),25 January 2008 (Michele Cunningham)

extract of the book in The Tablet, 26 January 2008

"a beautiful written book, Lapsed Agnostic is a perceptive account of the spiritual malaise affecting contemporary Ireland"Irish Mail on Sunday, 20 January 2008 (Tom O'Gorman)

mention in Bookseller Buyers Guide, 1 January 2008

Title mentioned in The Catholic Herald, April 2010

"Lapsed Agnostic and Beyond Consolation are a pair of pointed meditations on the experience of a generation that...finds itself entering the last decades of life without certainties and without rites. ...It is [Waters'] rigor—of judgement and of conscience—that makes his books worth reading."
-Commonweal
