  • This is not the God that most Christians worship.

    This is not a book to enjoy because the content is so startling ! To think that the abuse described actually takes place is almost beyond my comprehension. But the author's factual writing makes it very believable. I admire her courage to persist in exposing the brutal facts of the Independent Fundamental Baptist Cult.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I Fired God isn't what you're expecting.

    This is difficult. First, the title gives a false indication this book is about a loss of faith or a book about atheism; it is neither. This is not a book you can say "I liked it"; nor is it a book you can give a happy review. Mrs Zichterman's story isn't happy. It's not a story you'll find pleasure in reading. What it is, is a story that needed to be told. This is the story of a woman's struggle with indoctrination and abuse, and it serves to remind us that simply because a religion is "recognized", "established" or refers to itself by a familiar title (in this case Baptist), we forget that it can still be very much a cult. The book could be perceived as a bit thin on evidence, but that is simply due to ongoing legal issues. There are examples of horrific abuses that are easily confirmed by a quick google search, and in light of what has surfaced in the wake of scandlr of IFB and Quiverfull devotees The Dugger family (all of which happened after this book was published) it makes it very easy to believe all of the anecdotal offerings. Systemic misogyny is a command thread in almost every religion. The IFB (among others) use it as a way to hide abusers, and victims are brainwashed into believing its simply the way life is. Do I recommend it? Yes with hesitation. This book isn't for everyone. It's graphic, it's brutal, and it's heartbreaking. There is also the fact this woman has since seemingly vanished. Reddit and tumbler have vicious stories of her, but a quick check shows they are posts from IFB members, and a bizzare Twitter account that is very clearly an imposter. Wherever she is, I hope she and her family were safe.

    Thanks for your feedback!
