Abstract
 
Description
"When I was five, I knelt with my father in the living room of our house to ask Jesus into my heart." So begins Jon Sweeney's spiritual memoir of his childhood experiences. Full of poignancy, humor, and surprise, Born Again and Again explores aspects of Christian fundamentalism not usually seen: the mysticism of God indwelling the body, religious certainty and its positive and negative effects, powerful experiences of worship, community, and trust, and most of all, the importance of struggling with matters of faith until they are truly one's own. With a remarkable range of experiences - from Scofield Bibles to firsthand missionary work in Asia and from street witnessing to the tutelage of family and famous friends - Sweeney writes with warmth and affection for the faith he has left behind. And he offers wise reflections on those aspects of fundamentalism that all Christians can learn from. Visit Jon Sweeney's blog at www.jonmsweeney.wordpress.com. - from Amzon
