About-

This book tells the story of Keith's restless journey of faith, from his early days at Prairie Bible Institute in Canada, through positive encounters with
Anglican evangelicalism in Australia, and into a more restful and sustainable faith. The book charts a way forward for people who feel they must choose between fundamentalism and jettisoning their faith altogether.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"I agree with Keith on some issues, but not others. In one sense this is beside the point. Keith is more interested in asking the right questions than in answering them. The book is more biography than polemic--and is the better for it. It is a personal cry for a more gracious church: a community of faith that seeks to open up proper dialogue rather than shutting down an honest search for the truth."
--Right Reverend Stuart P. Robinson,
Bishop, Anglican Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn, Australia

"I fully commend Reverend Dr. Keith Mascord's book. For me as an Aboriginal theologian, it raised still-unanswered questions about the impact of Christianity's arrival on this continent, and of the need for a hermeneutic connected to this land, its peoples, and their stories. My hope is that my people will join, and not be excluded from, the quest for God and for better understandings that Dr. Mascord articulates in his highly readable autobiography."
--Pastor Ray Minniecon,
Aboriginal Community Chaplain, Redfern, New South Wales

"This is a journey out of fundamentalism with a difference. So many such books depict personal despair and existential agony. This one takes us into the warm and generous lifeworld of a man who, from his youth, has loved a theological stoush as much as a good game of touch rugby. It follows Keith's steps as he loses his faith in fundamentalism's answers--but never his love for the people who raised him in its traditions. This is a book to bring comfort and hope to those walking a similar path."
--Marion Maddox,
CORE Professor and ARC Future Fellow, Macquarie University, Sydney; author of God Under Howard: The Rise of the Religious Right in Australian Politics
