Sin Bravely: A Memoir of Spiritual Disobedience (MP3 CD)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
As a young girl, Maggie Rowe took the idea of salvation very seriously. Growing up in a moderately religious household, her fear of eternal damnation turned into a childhood terror that drove her to become an outrageously dedicated Born-again Christian-regularly slinging Bible verses in cutthroat scripture memorization competitions and assaulting strangers at shopping malls with the -good news- that they were going to hell. Finally, at nineteen, crippled by her fear, she checked herself in to an Evangelical psychiatric facility-and that is where her journey really began. Surrounded by a ragtag cast of characters, including a former biker meth-head struggling with anger management issues, a set of identical twins tormented by erotic fantasies, a World War II veteran who insists that he's only -locked up for a tune-up, - and a warm and upbeat chronic depressive who becomes the author's closest ally, Maggie launches a campaign to, in the words of Martin Luther, -Sin bravely in order to know the forgiveness of God.- Told in a voice both funny and heartfelt, Sin Bravely is a tour de force, voice-driven debut that examines how one woman finally found the middle ground between Heaven and Hell.
