“On Fire for the Lord and Other Scalding Tales" by Bodie Parkhurst (Paperback)

Image: On Fire for the Lord and Other Scalding Tales

In On Fire for the Lord Bodie Parkhurst explores her childhood in a conservative Christian home where terrible unspoken secrets shape everyday life. Everybody has one or more—her parents are concealing a guilty past; the church she attends each week is filled with women who “do” and women who “don’t;” and Bodie herself is carefully hiding the fact that, though believing in God and Jesus is a “given in her home,” she cannot believe. In a series of poignant, sometimes sad, sometimes terrible, often hilarious stories, she traces her journey away from the faith that first shaped, and ultimately threatened, her life.
