How I can relate to the author's experience of his early church memories and his father. The author recounts his life from early childhood to adulthood, married with children of his own. Very open and honest, the author describes deep feelings of not belonging and wanting to fit in with his peers. The stunts he pulled to try to accomplish this. Moreover, the author details his relationship with his father as he grew up. It was not a good relationship and the author is brutally honest. I won't spoil it, but anyone who grew up in an alcoholic home can easily relate. I won't even hint at where the CIA comes in - you must read this passionate book.
The author doesn't pull any punches, either, as he describes the self-destructive ways he used to try to cope with his heartbreaking relationship with his father. The author honestly reveals his journey from childhood to adulthood and includes the good and the bad. More imoortantly, the author demonstrates how he regained his lost belief in Jesus.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially anyone who grew up in alcoholism. It's truly a great read. The author uses a lot of humor, which compelled my interest.
