Пользовательский отзыв - Tracy - Goodreads. Beautiful memoir but so sad to know that she's left the Church again since writing this book. Anne Rice is the author of more than thirty internationally bestselling books including the Mayfair Witches sequence, Songs of the Seraphim and the Wolf Gift Chronicles. The phenomenon that became the Vampire Chronicles began with Interview with the Vampire in 1976, later made into a film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, and culminated with Blood Canticle in 2003.

With CALLED OUT OF DARKNESS, Anne Rice gives readers the very first autobiographical look at herself. In doing so, we discover how little was actually known about the woman who gave us such gothic horror classics as INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE and THE VAMPIRE LESTAT. I have just finished Called Out of Darkness: A Spiritual Confession by Anne Rice and I found it to be a quite powerful conversion to Christ beautifully written. In May, 2005, I had what I would call a "spiritual awakening" (when words in the gospels suddenly jumped out at me and produced a significant transformation within me) and since then have been avidly pursuing the subject.

Called Out of Darkness: A Spiritual Confession (2008). After the rights had been sold to Knopf, Anne rewrote the book, adding the entire Theater of the Vampires section and bringing Lestat back after his supposed death by fire. Study Questions for Interview With The Vampire

Called Out of Darkness: A Spiritual Confession (2008). Study Questions for Interview With The Vampire. Over the years Rice has been asked why she chose the vampire as her hero.

Called Out Of Darkness Called Out Of Darkness. I love this book because it is such a change from what this author, Anne Rice, used to write.

Called Out Of Darkness. I never read Anne Rice's books because of her subject matter -vampires - but I heard she had had a change of heart and was interested to see what had happened. I read the book in just a few sittings -it's rather short - and was blown away by her story. Her spiritual journey is facinating and she writes about it clearly and succintly. It was a biography, somewhat about how she changed from writing about demons, supernaturals, devils, growing up in New Orleans, et. and now only writes about Heavenly matters.

An intimate memoir of Anne Rice’s Catholic girlhood, her unmaking as a devout believer, and her return to the Church – what she calls a decision of the heart.Moving from her New Orleans childhood in the 1940s and ‘50s, with all its religious devotions, through how she slowly lost her belief in God, Called Out of Darkness also recounts Anne’s years in radical Berkeley, where she wrote Interview with the Vampire (a lament for her lost faith) and where she came to admire the principles of secular humanists. She writes about loss and alienation (her mother’s drinking, the deaths of her young daughter and later, her husband); about the birth of her son, Christopher; and about how, after 38 years as an atheist, she once again came to believe in Christ. Anne Rice makes a spiritual confession that is a celebration: a brilliant, subtle exploration of the journey through life that allows one to answer the call out of darkness.

I heartily recommend that regardless of where you stand on your appreciation of Anne's writings about her faith, that you take the time to read The Joy of Y'at Catholicism by Earl J. Higgins (Pelican, 2007). On page 14 is brief summary of an essay that Anne wrote for Time magazine. "New Orleans author Anne Rice, writer of vampire novels, tells of how she left New Orleans and Catholicism but felt the compelling need to return to both. She explains that being in New Orleans, living again in the city where she was raised, made her feel love for place, family, and God."

PLACE: I am reminded of a line from the song "The Circle of Life" from Disney's "The Lion King", which reads "...til we find our place on the path unwinding..." In old New Orleans, before the Civil Rights Era, the idea of place was that you were put in the equivalent of a strait jacket once you grew up and went to work. Your education, your skills, and (sadly) your race defined your place as well. I get the impression from Anne that she is content to have the comfort of her Garden District/Uptown neighborhood around her. Still, I have a sense that she seeks to encourage others to look beyond the old strait jacket, and keep New Orleans ever growing, ever changing, ever astonishing the rest of the world (the rest of the world that does not expect anything much from New Orleans).

FAMILY: In reading Anne's novels, and this equivalent of "The Confessions of St. Augustine", it has become clear to me that to her, even if all else is falling apart around you, the family is what you cling to. New Orleans is an extended family. You know when you arrive here that you have come home.

GOD: In her novels, Anne struggles over and over with forming an image of God that makes sense in both the material and the spiritual sense. Here, in Called Out of Darkness, I get the impression that she is still searching. I wish her well.

Indeed Anne's descriptive memories of her childhood growing up in a large Catholic family brought back many memories. The ones most cherished however were those of the church with the beautiful descriptions of the stained glass windows, the altar, Holy Communion, the Stations of the Cross..... The Crowning of Our Blessed Mother. All, I hold closer to my heart than I ever realized. Although I've had a faith crisis in the last few years that was short lived I have walked with the Lord for forty years. I did not know him in my childhood although, like Anne, if anyone had asked, my response would have been positive. It was only when I was in my early thirties, when I truly asked him to come into my heart, engaged in a personal relationship with my Lord Jesus, that I knew. I've sought him ever since as I so need him in every aspect of my life and this book has given me a even deeper hunger.
Having taken many Bible studies over the years I find that although I see where Anne is coming from in her assessment of the totality of embracing all faiths, all peoples, I still very much believe that as the scriptures clearly state we are to love our fellow man but we are also to speak truth. Therefore truth comes from the Word of God, these are the words of Jesus. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Then verses 17 & 18 "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son."

This speaks so clearly that to have eternal life with our Father in heaven , it is through his Son Jesus. We can't pretend otherwise!!
We are all sinners yet we always strive to abide by His word, loving one another, speaking truth in love, though others might perish, therefore allowing light to come into any darkness.

Through this book much 'light' has come into mine and for that I thank you. It truly blessed me!!

In His Joy, Linda Morris

I felt that her last book of the vampires wasn't written in her usual 'voice.' I can forgive her for that, since her husband died that year. That caused me to leave off reading her novels for some time. When I finally got around to reading her Christ novels, I found them a little dry and still out of character for her (though the second one was better). In this novel, it seems she is returning to her old self. Not quite there, but still much improved over her last three works. It was a quick and easy read leaving me wanting more. I found the time traveling stuff reminiscent of Dark Shadows and the main mortal and angel characters reminded me of characters from Supernatural. (Both shows that I love) As of posting this review, I have just ordered the sequel to this book. Anne masterfully crafts what I would consider the most important part of a good story - character development. Can't wait for more. And I plan on getting to her werewolf novels afterwords.
