For anyone who "grew up in the church" (and if you know that phrase you know what I mean) this will be such an enjoyable read. I've never met Mike Allen and I didn't go to Harding, but everything else is warm and familiar like an old coat that's been well worn. No huge doctrinal points to debate, no axes to grind, just some great stories reminiscing about camp and navigating all the "rules" Christian kids grow up with, which seem so backward and repressive at the time but now you realize the protection they afforded. The book is heavy on nostalgia and makes you want to go back to the "good old days" when life was simple and grape Crush was "like drinking liquid gold." The paragraph about Kristy Thomas alone was worth the purchase and the time it took to reach that page.
