A Standard Christian Now in Hard Copy
|For readers who just cannot say goodbye, the complete A Standard Christian is now available in hard copy.|
This is Grace Jovian's continuing story of coming of age in Independent Baptist Fundamentalism. A sequel to Secret Radio, this book can be read as a stand-alone story.
Now having graduated from the unaccredited and repressive Greater Indiana Baptist College, Grace launches out into life on her own terms. The daughter of an evangelist, she encounters new secrets and scandals in the dark side of Fundamentalism. At the same time, a Christianity she never knew about: kind, gentle, and patient, is waiting for her, as well as the opportunities for genuine education.
Anybody who has experienced church abuse, especially those who still have faith in Christ but suffer trauma, grief and doubts from their experiences, will welcome Grace's story. Told with honesty, good humor, and candor, A Standard Christian dispels many Fundamentalist myths and confronts the disobedience, scandals, and secrets tolerated for decades in the most conservative churches in America.
