Overview

The Circumcision of God by Johnny Townsend

These sixteen stories reveal Mormons with serious problems their church can't always help solve. A young girl has to fight the Klan in 1960's Mississippi. A betrayed husband facing divorce demands the return of the kidney he donated to his wife. A young gay man is forced out of the closet by his dying mother. A woman desperately hopes her husband dies of natural causes before his suicide attempt is successful. A teenage girl is shot by the young ward she is babysitting. These accounts may all be about Mormons, but they don't tell the faith-promoting stories one hears at church. They tell the tales of real people the Church simply can't acknowledge.
