Review: Speaking In Tongues by Tom Tilley
This was an interesting read about a childhood and a family who were shaped by a fundamentalist church community, one that Tilley would learn as he grew older had beliefs that were separate to other Christian churches and even other Pentecostal churches--and the rules far more harshly enforced to the point where entire families would be split up and lives turned upside down. It also takes a frank look at what it means to walk away--the huge personal costs and surprising personal discoveries made along the way. Fortunately, Tilley's journey toward independence has an excellent outcome, even if the journey is somewhat hard going.
I would definitely recommend this one to any reader who wants to know more about fundamentalist religions and how they work--it's an excellent insider view. It's also an excellent one for anyone who is at a point in their lives where they are beginning to question who they really are.
