Description
What does it mean to "give church a try" when you haven't really tried since you were 12? At the end of her wildly popular memoir Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Rhoda Janzen had reconnected with her family and her roots, though her future felt uncertain. But when she starts dating a "Jesus-nail-necklace-wearing manly man, the kind whose hands were so huge they ripped his jeans pockets," this skeptic begins a surprising journey to faith and love. And after having a major health crisis, Janzen doesn't slide back into the dignified simplicity of the Mennonite church, either; instead, she finds herself hanging with the Pentecostals, who really know how to get down with sparkler pom-poms. Does This Church Make Me Look Fat? is for people who have a problem with organized religion, yet can't quite dismiss the notion of God.

"Paul Shaffer, the noted theologian/TV sidekick, once said that if God is the ultimate being, he must have the ultimate sense of humor. To which I add, Rhoda Janzen is not far behind. This is one funny book. Not to mention thought-provoking and touching."—AJ Jacobs

"Rhoda Janzen is one of the few people I trust to write about faith without using God to clobber me. She writes about the most serious things in the world—life, death, family, love—with such spot-on honesty, spiritual humility, and disarming humor that I would follow her anywhere. The nicest thing I can say about her new book is that it made me want to be a better person. It is that good."—Barbara Brown Taylor
