When a spiritual awakening in his last year of high school wrenches Dodd out of his rebellious party days, he embarks on a quest for God. He exchanges pot smoking for worship dancing, gives up MTV for Christian pop, and enrolls at a Christian university. Soon, however, he finds himself ill at ease with the other Christians around him and with the cloying superficiality of the Christian subculture. Dodd tells his story in contradictory terms—conversion and confusion, acceptance and rejection, spiritual highs and psychological lows. With painstaking honesty, he tries to negotiate a relationship with his faith apart from the cultural trappings that often clothe it.
Dodd’s moving story paints a nuanced and multilayered portrait of an earnest quest for God: the hunger for genuine faith, the bleak encounters with doubt, and the consuming questions that challenge the intellect and the soul. This is a story that will resonate with the emerging generation of young adults attempting to break new ground within their own faith tradition.
Grady O'Neil5 Stars Out Of 5October 23, 2007Grady O'NeilIt was SOOOO good. I LOVED it. I am a 19-year-old college student and it kept my attention entirely - I read it in a weekend.Hilarious, honest, heartfelt and not only a book of "sugar-coated Jesus Freak" stuff, but "normal" stuff as well. Patton Dodd was amazing --- Really truthful and passionate and overwhelmed, which was great. And he has a great writer's voice.I would recommend this as a gift to any and all high school through college-aged people.
