Anne Rice Interview: Why She Quit Christianity

Category : Blogs (Faith), Life-Ecstatic (Faith)

For those of you who don’t know Anne Rice, she is best known as the author of The Vampire Chronicles including Interview with the Vampire, which was translated into a movie some time back, starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Christian Slater. She’s a great writer.

A few years back (I don’t really know how long ago) she became a Christian, a Catholic in particular. But recently she has announced that she has quit Christianity.

This is a great interview (only just over four minutes) where she explains a little more about why she quit Christianity and what she means by that. She also briefly explains her new work focused on angels. I found it interesting, especially since I am a writer myself and a Christian.

    Hmmm... I read Interview with the vampire and gritted my teeth and struggled determinedly right through to the last page, just so that I could say that I had. I found it excuciatingly boring. Dracula, on the other hand, I have read several times, and enjoyed it each time.
