Coming from a similar background, I can understand Brett Grainger''s need to understand his family''s faith. His honest exploration of his type of fundamentalsim and its roots helped me be more honest about my own faith and where it sprang from. He holds up a mirror to fundamentalism in a way that is forthright and has a sense of humor that is sadly missing from many people''s attitudes about religion and faith today.
