I admit I was one of those who considered Amy a traitor to her religion and her fans. But recently I’ve come to the realization that she is in fact a perfect example of what God wants in a person: contrition. The Bible tells the story of the prodigal son who turns his back on his family to live the good life and then returns home penniless, hoping to be taken back by his father.

Maybe Amy’s recent release of hymns is not desperate marketing, but rather the last stage in her repentance – returning to the Christian world for forgiveness.
