From the first paragraph of the Prelude:
"The man's shoulder was inked with a tattoo of Jesus breathing fire out of his mouth, which I concluded to mean one of two things: the man was going to offer me the opportunity to be born again in the hot fumes of a fire-breathing Messiah or he planned to kill me and make it necessary for me to be born again."
To the last:
"Oh, I won't quote it ~ YOU have to read the book", I was intrigued with Matthew's wit and ability to draw the reader into his stories.
A timely, humorous and sensitive book where chapter after chapter offers a glimpse of a childhood rooted in a fundamental church where rules were made to be followed. It seems this was a place where fire and brimstone were preached in order to scare the Hell out of you. Yet, Matthew has relayed these stories in a way that I wish I was growing up with him.
I encourage you to read this book as Matthew takes you from fundamentalism to loving Jesus.
Thank you Matthew for allowing me to read and review your newest 'baby'. I am thankful for the opportunity and truly enjoyed the book. It is one of those books I will re-read time and again.
I even had the chance to read some of it to my granddaughter.
Look at that face, she loved it.
