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. From the Hardcover edition.

Hallelujah Anyhow! Have you ever been in a situation when you’ve felt like there was no way out? Or that your world was crashing down around you? Or “how did I get here, and how do I get out?” I think that most of us would say that we have “been there, done that” and somehow managed to overcome the most challenging circumstances. Some people might say it was luck. Some of us, looking on a more spiritual note, will tell you that “the Lord carried you through.” There are times when my pastor, the Reverend Dr. William F. Baskerville of Mount Mariah Baptist Church, would say, “You ought to shout Hallelujah Anyhow!” Life is full of changes and experiences. I guess that’s what makes life such a beautiful enigma. We are shaped, molded, and cultivated by the apprehension of material things, thoughts, and emotions that we sense. We are human, and we live to experience and adapt through the accumulation of knowledge. In Hallelujah Anyhow we share our tears, our losses, our fears, our truths, and our joys. Life’s trials become lessons and, ultimately, our testimonies. It is our hope that you can connect with what you read and find some joy out of it, and if not, hopefully you find it worthy of a ... Hallelujah Anyhow!
