Best-selling author/Bible teacher Moore’s (Now That Faith Has Come) memoir begins with her early years in Arkansas and ends with her current life in Texas. In between, readers are treated to a bevy of interesting characters and a life filled with a multitude of experiences, joys, and heartaches. The author describes her initial relationship with and eventual disassociation from Lifeway Christian resources, the publisher of her Bible study materials. The book also explains Moore’s reasons for leaving the Southern Baptist Convention. Readers witness her occasional questioning or simple acceptances of an ever-deepening relationship with God and His role in her life. Written with great attention to detail, this book also gives readers a descriptive view into what the author’s life was like growing up in the South during the early and mid-1960s.
VERDICT Highly recommended for those interested in Christian studies, gender issues, and social history.
