Jerry Dewitt was just seventeen when he became a pulpit-pounding Louisiana pastor. For twenty-five years, he ministered to his Pentecostal flock, but it took only one phone call plea for him to realize that the faith to which he had devoted so much of his life had dwindled away. Eventually outed as an atheist, Dewitt was shunned by his rural community and soon lost both his wife and his job. In this candid memoir, he describes his passage from belief to atheism and explains how his changing views actually strengthened his sense of morality, happiness, and self-confidence.
