Instead you will find a carefully worded yet honest synopsis of the reply from Ami McConnell, summarizing and in some cases directly quoting from her email.Her reply completely ignored the issue I raised about the use of gutter language. I have included her email address here on this page, in the hopes that should you feel the same way that I do, you will let her know.Ami McConnell at Thomas Nelson PublishersOn August 22, 2007, I received a reply from Ami McConnell, Senior Acquisitions Editor, Fiction, at Thomas Nelson Publishers.Though I am prohibited from reproducing her email in its entirety, I will provide an honest synopsis of her reply:First, she thanked me for writing, and said she was grateful for "frontline sales folks" who care about the books we sell.Then, Ms. McConnell informed me that she was the editor on Reconstructing Natalie, and that she worked closely with Women of Faith when they selected this book as their Novel of the Year.So, she says, she knows the content of this book.She claims that there is indeed a spiritual message in this book, that "it shines through like a beacon."Her email then goes on to talk about "what is so cool about this book," and she includes such things as it is "honest" and "refreshingly candid about the way women really feel about their bodies."She talks about the "spectrum of reactions we get in a crisis," especially something so invasive and intimate as breast cancer.Ms. McConnell writes that the book shows "how when we're completely undone, we have an opportunity to rebuilt and be rebuilt."Ms. McConnell writes as though I am objecting about the subject matter of breast cancer--which I am not!She encourages "any person--whether a believer or not--" to read this book.And that is my concern -- if a non-believer reads this, will she see this gutter language and wonder if that is the way all Christians talk?Please understand: I am not on a personal crusade to punish anyone.It's just that it's time we Christians stop playing games with the world, and that we draw some lines over which we will not cross.Should you share these convictions with me, I invite you to please email Ms. McConnell and express yourself to her.Thank you!
