Are You There God? It's Me Ellen.

Are you there God?  It's Me Ellen

by Ellen Coyne


This is an important book for anyone who has an interest in the future of the Catholic church.

The author, a journalist in her early thirties, provides the reader with an interesting, lively and thought provoking description of the influence of the Catholic church on Irish society during the past century, the current state of the church and the direction in which she believes Catholics should be moving in order to ensure the survival of their church.

By the end of the book, the reader has gained a clear understanding of the reasons behind the author’s decision to return to her Catholic faith.
