Praise

“Funny, smart, literate—a journey, not into or away from religious belief . . . but through that belief.” —The Dallas Morning News

“Ardently told. . . . Will be enjoyed by those who feel, as Halford does, ‘a complicated nostalgia’ for the evangelical faith—those who can’t and won’t defend all the old doctrines but find that religion still pulls at them.” —The New York Times Book Review

“This timely memoir seeks to reconcile an evangelical upbringing in Texas with literary life in a godless New York. . . . Halford is self-conscious about her love for Oswald Chambers’s daily devotional. . . . She reclaims Chambers as an artist manqué and a radical thinker.” The New Yorker

“Absorbing . . . One of the best books of [its] kind I’ve read over the past twenty-five years or so.” —John Wilson, Commonweal

“Enlightening. . . . Chambers’s life and legacy, along with Halford’s own personal journey, prove to be a powerful lens through which to examine the roots of fundamentalist evangelicalism and its rocky relationship with the modern world.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
