OC Author Celebrated By NY TImes!

William Lobdell, the voice you regularly hear discussing Orange County issues with Steven Greenhut of the Register and our very own Gustavo Arellano on KPCC-FM, won a positive review of his book in today's New York Times.

"There are many great books about finding God," according to reviewer Mark Oppenheimer. "But there are far fewer books, great or otherwise, about finding and then losing God. So "Losing My Religion," by William Lobdell, a former religion writer for The Los Angeles Times, feels powerfully fresh."

Oppenheimer also called Lobdell, who worked for years at the Daily Pilot and in the Orange County bureau of the Times, "quite a rarity."

Prior to the review, the book was ranked an impressive third in the "religion and faith" category of sales on Amazon.com
