Overview

Meet Tim. A homeschooler from rural Virginia, Tim dreams of attending Jerry Falwell's Liberty University and becoming a pastor of his very own Church.
Indoctrinated in fundamentalist Baptist theology from toddlerhood, Tim is uniquely gifted to succeed in his pastoral training.

After some close encounters with gay activists, Jerry Falwell, napalm explosives, the FBI, ATF, Police, nudist missionaries, alcoholic alums, sword wielding Muslim roommates and death threats from a Kenyan Muslim...Tim got quite the Liberty Experience.

Tim, the preacher boy, took those things in stride but when he was challenged to read The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins his life and faith would never be the same.

This book is not exactly the best written thing I have seen in my life--it has several editing problems and even a typo or two BUT with that said, it is extremely unusual. The story is fascinating, authentic and nothing like I expected. According to the author's blog there is a 2nd edition coming out later in 2012. I am glad I got the first edition however because it is raw and uncensored and takes no prisoners. Here's hoping later editions only clean up the editing and not diminish the tone of the story. It is visceral and unaffected. There is a quote, "a gentleman is someone who never offends anyone by accident." Timothy tries to keep it respectable but there are some parts which are blatantly offensive and unforgettably so. Probably bound to offend more than entertain I am still glad I got it and will be reading it again because like a train wreck, I don't want to look but I cannot look away.
