This book hits the bullseye! From the pop quizzes about the Bible to the potluck supper recipe for Red Jello With Fruit and Marshmallows, I enjoyed every page (and winced at a few memories). If you grew up in a Born Again household, I recommend this book completely... it's like they were eavesdropping on my childhood! The authors do an excellent job of getting their message across without being preachy, condescending, or sarcastic.
