"We may all therefore question what motives lie behind the publication of A Prayer Journal. Some of us have begun to fear that the O’Connor estate seeks to control the image of the writer, as though, in a manner of speaking, her works sprang fullblown(and in nearly perfect form) from the head of Zeus and as though she were a model Catholic. Perhaps for Catholic readers who are schooled in the parochial ascetic tradition A Prayer Journal will prove inspirational; for other Christians and for secular admirers of O’Connor’s work, I suspect publication of this journal will be embarrassing,if not troubling indeed."
