Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy


From the bestselling author of Help, Thanks, Wow and Stitches comes a powerful exploration of mercy, its limitless (if sometimes hidden) presence, why we ignore it, and how we can embrace it

Mercy is radical kindness, Anne Lamott writes in her enthralling and heartening book, Hallelujah Anyway. It's the permission you give others--and yourself--to forgive a debt, to absolve the unabsolvable, to let go of the judgment and pain that make life so difficult.

In Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy Lamott ventures to explore where to find meaning in life. We should begin, she suggests, by -facing a great big mess, especially the great big mess of ourselves.- It's up to each of us to recognize the presence and importance of mercy everywhere-within us and outside us, all around us-and to use it to forge a deeper understanding of ourselves and more honest connections with each other. While that can be difficult to do, Lamott argues that it's crucial, as kindness towards others, beginning with myself, buys us a shot at a warm and generous heart, the greatest prize of all.

Full of Lamott's trademark honesty, humor and forthrightness, Hallelujah Anyway is profound and caring, funny and wise--a hopeful book of hands-on spirituality.

    I generally read anything this author writes but even if I didn't the title in this one made it a must read. This world needs more mercy and compassion, it is I feel sorely lacking. Although I found t...

    For me, Anne Lamott's nonfiction books on living in faith (and I don't mean denominational Faith) are not individual volumes but one continuing narrative. I mean this as a compliment. True, some books...

    (2.5) I’ve read all of Lamott’s nonfiction, and am quite fond of her rambly theological memoirs. Although this is probably one of her two weakest books, her fans will want to read it anyway. The o...

    Every time Anne Lamott releases a book, it is somehow just what I needed to read. I definitely struggle with forgiving people, and I do fully grasp that the only one hurt by this is me. (People should...

    I'm sorry to be giving this book such few stars, but it was mostly a miss for me. I love Anne Lamott's writing - she can be funny and biting and tender all at once. But this writing was often rambling...

    I must admit that this is my first book that I've read by her, but I really, really loved it. It was exactly what I needed to her. This world could definitely use more mercy and kindness....

    This is what I get for rushing to load my Kindle before vacation. I though it said from the author of "THE Help." Oh the power of a tiny article! This author wrote a book called "Help..." not "THE Hel...

    I loved this book as I have all of Anne Lamott's books. She is so imperfectly perfect! Real Christianity here for us to relate to. This is one I will read over and over. The only flaw was she never sa...

    Anne Lamott's books are so comforting. Even when they're challenging, they are challenging in a comforting way, like a long-time, trusted friend. In the challenging times in which we live, it is comfo...
