If your faith could confess, what would it tell you?
It’s us, the devout, who are expected to confess to our pastors. But what if our faith could confess its darker secrets to us?
A silent dialogue between a businessman and a priest takes place against the backdrop of a papal address humming through the Vatican plaza, questioning uncomfortable truths of the Catholic religion and exploring what really goes on in the minds of the devout… of any faith.
A work of fiction written in the breathless “thought-stream” style pioneered by the author, Czech-born writer Birgitte Rasine, “Confession” pulls you into its racing pulse and doesn’t let go even after you’ve read the last word. It breaks through the ancient walls of the practice of confession in Christianity and brings to light long-standing questions about faith and religion that remain debated to this day.

Birgitte Rasine’s Confession brilliantly traverses mind and soul, intuition and intellect, history and timelessness, reaching deftly into the deeper meaning and life purpose reflected in the profound and inane alike. Sparked by a personal journey of the author’s own, Confession is sure to stop us in our tracks, providing an unexpected speed bump in our fast paced journey—a speed bump just abrupt enough to let the cup of cold water bring us to awareness. By all means, allow yourself to taste the wisdom found here. There’s nothing quite like it!
