"A man would be singularly inert if he were not to find this account vastly tantalizing. What an extraordinary tale! The way Ellis proceeds through his life from earliest childhood on keeps a reader wanting to know what comes next. And his prose is a blessed relief to anyone who loves good English prose."
-Thomas Howard, PhD, author Christ the Tiger
This narrative is the first to reveal one Christian Science family's story, their faith's underpinnings and those singular episodes that collided with Ellis' beliefs including his Christian Science mother being treated by a beam of protons at the Harvard University cyclotron, his father's unsolved murder in Harlem, and the religious tensions in his childhood home that ultimately exploded. Ellis' sometimes painful, always captivating journey will inspire everyone being challenged by today's extraordinary scientific discoveries which appear to leave no room for God.
