Maybe this would have made a better magazine article Jesus Freak starts fairly well, but it quickly becomes repetitious, predictable, and dull Almost every character the author mentions having met after getting involved with a San Francisco church is introduced as unusual and interesting but there is almost nothing that ever shows the reader what made them so interesting to her The only one who might have held our attention is the author herself, and she is very reticent on that subject o Maybe this would have made a better magazine article Jesus Freak starts fairly well, but it quickly becomes repetitious, predictable, and dull Almost every character the author mentions having met after getting involved with a San Francisco church is introduced as unusual and interesting but there is almost nothing that ever shows the reader what made them so interesting to her The only one who might have held our attention is the author herself, and she is very reticent on that subject on her past, that is Not too reticent on her present There seems to be a sub genre in full bloom of politically oriented personalities whose disappointments or frustrations in life send them back to their religious roots Then they tell us directly, or sometimes indirectly what tremendous Christians they are, now, and how hard it is to be them, how much effort it takes To me, there are few subjects withpotential for
