Helen Sloane is in for one interesting year. Written as a series of journal entries, Heaven Help Helen Sloane is refreshingly honest, poignant, and often hilarious, documenting - in Helen’s own words - the daily struggles a young Christian woman must face. Helen’s new job as a social worker keeps her busy all day in a whirlwind of case notes and court papers, and at home she’s a house group leader for Frenton-on-Sea’s New Wave Christian Fellowship. She loves her church but she struggles with faith and doubt, exposed to the religious extremes of both hyper-spiritual friends and her New Age mom.And with her busy schedule, Helen also struggles to make time for love. Still, she finds two men in her life: a handsome worship leader who might not be as godly as he seems, and a former Christian turned Bohemian bad boy. Can she keep her faith strong in the midst of a chaotic life? Jeff Lucas answers this question through the joy, tragedy, love, and heartbreak revealed in the pages of Helen Sloane’s journal.

This book was so down to earth it was refreshing. It brought out how we Christians really feel, sometimes, without getting ugly or over intimate. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a read without supernatural or super-violent breakneck content. I think both author and performer did a great job.
