"The author, herself a young refugee from evangelicalism, tells a bracing story that mixes bloodcurdling accounts of (oblivious white patriarchal straight male) evangelicalism with stories of the emerging young leaders who are challenging it. This is an important contribution, carefully reported, thoughtful in its analysis, and highly recommended." - David Gushee
"One of the most important books I've read in years."
- Rachel Held Evans, author

- Library Journal, Starred Review
