    PDF/EPUB alternate universe.co å fathermothergod PDF ½ fathermothergod epub, fathermothergod ePUBI have been waiting for some sustained uiet in order to write this review; Now I have it and I'm feeling crushed by it In no uncertain terms I want to first declare that this is a very good book a 4 star read for the average memoir enthusiast It is a moving and sincere memoir of reconciling one's own beliefs with the ones you were raised with and if that kind of book interests you this should be at the top of your pile At the same time it is a book about Christian Science and if CS played any kind of role in your life I realize my audience just grew considerably smaller hot buttons will be pressed and you will be faced with ideas and concepts you may have thought you'd already dealt with either solved or forgotten and bravely wal

    PDF/EPUB alternate universe.co å fathermothergod PDF ½ fathermothergod epub, fathermothergod ePUBI always believed that every person was entitled to their own beliefs This book challenged this belief and ultimately forced me to alter it I now believe that each person is entitled to their own beliefs provided that those beliefs do not harm anyone else Had I lived this author's life I don't know if I could have survived it I have nothing but respect for how difficult and painful it must have been to write this memoir I have deep admiration for the author's strength and courage I read this powerful thought provoking book in a single day simply because I could not put it down Parts of the book made me so angry that I had to take a break and process my thoughts Other parts made me cry for the pain this family experienced Still others made me laugh out loud It is a rare book that can do all of those things and for good or ill that kind of book is ALWAYS worth readi

    PDF/EPUB alternate universe.co å fathermothergod PDF ½ fathermothergod epub, fathermothergod ePUBAfter reading a fair number of losing my religion memoirs I picked up this book with lukewarm expectations I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that subject matter aside Greenhouse's book kept me turning pages well into the night Her narrative begins a tad slowly skipping through her childhood and adolescence with well written scenes of her own indoctrination Some readers will probably complain that she included

    PDF/EPUB alternate universe.co å fathermothergod PDF ½ fathermothergod epub, fathermothergod ePUBLemme get this straight The author went to a Christian Science Sunday School when she was a kid then in junior high or something decided it was a load of crap then refused to have anything to do with it I'm sorry but how does this differ from the experience of eleventy zillion other teenagers out there who've rebelled against the religion of their upbringing? The title of course hints at some rugged deprogramming regimen maybe harrowing escape from the smothering clutches of some creepy cult But you won't find anything like that between the covers of this book Nope Turns out the author decided to stop going to Sunday School when she was 15 That was her journey out of Christian Science? LOL And someone gave her a book contract to write about THAT? ROTFLMAO Whatever this girl's journey it wasn't a journey out of Christian Science Evidently it wasn't a journey out of whining e

    PDF/EPUB alternate universe.co å fathermothergod PDF ½ fathermothergod epub, fathermothergod ePUBI really enjoyed this book's perspective Unlike Jon Krakauer's book Under the Banner of Heaven this book was written with the insight of somebody raised under a Christian Science roofPart 1 the basic principles of CS and their culturePart 2 mom gets sick and the family tries to cope with her illness via CS which amounts to only prayer and no acknowledging her illnessPart 3 fifteen years later the author's life after CS and her dilemma about whether to publish her story or notI liked reading about this religion and though I don't necessarily understand it completely at least I've now been exposed to its inner workings I recommend

    PDF/EPUB alternate universe.co å fathermothergod PDF ½ fathermothergod epub, fathermothergod ePUBThere's much that's deeply pathetic about this book and one's heart inevitably goes out to dysfunctional families in the face of death But the self centered and guilt ridden efforts of the chain smoking author to misrepresent Christian Science and its practice are at best dishonest and at worst patent muckraking for the purpose of making money and glorifying her own ego The choices made by her parents were theirs to make although they ignored the CS practice of leaving surgery to the skillful fingers of a surgeon utilizing pain killers and seeking medical means if healing is not developing The author seems to have no knowledge of these options open to Christian Scientists

    PDF/EPUB alternate universe.co å fathermothergod PDF ½ fathermothergod epub, fathermothergod ePUBI received a proof copy of fathermothergod through a Goodreads giveaway While Lucia's story is compelling and the book is very well written I struggled with the subtitle Mrs Greenhouse describes in her book a relationship with both her parents and her faith that was contemptuous from seemingly a very young age I would say that this is of a story about re negotiating relationships with her parents than her faith While her relationship with her parents is steadfast but complicated and truthfully whose isn't her connections to the Christian Science faith traditions are wish washy To say that this book educates or informs one of the inner side of a mostly private but hardly cult like denomination is a bit of a stretch I was also annoyed at the the repeated apologies for what is without a doubt her individual perspect
