There’s something else going on here, and I wish Cameron would have used her good mind and fearlessness to talk about it. Instead, she sticks to the same old tired Christian party line. Without a complete, logical discussion of how we either co-create or block creation, it's impossible to buy into Cameron’s promise of greater comfort and joy by settling for what we don't want, God's Plan B. Frankly, it sounds a lot like the booby prize.
Then there’s the formatting. Faith and Will is written like one long journal entry that never ends. Cameron doesn’t organize her material into chapters or topics, and this is mildly annoying because the reader has to do the work of figuring out what’s going on. It also gives Cameron the flexibility to meander and weave in and out of the same topic several times throughout the book. Personally, I prefer it when the author gives me a tidy package and makes it easier for me to follow along. Cameron also relies heavily on quotes from Christian scripture and to a lesser degree, 12-step thought, to make a point, and people with an affinity for these sources of inspiration will like Faith and Will more than others.
Gripes aside, Cameron offers the reader several practical tools for dealing with life’s disappointments. Find a way to commune with God (Cameron does it through writing). Reach for the next step. Concentrate of what feels right. Express gratitude for what you already have. Pray. These are simple steps anyone and everyone can take to get unstuck and to hold a higher, more helpful thought.
