He spent his childhood trapped within the confines of countless bizarre, strict rules. And lived to tell about it. In this first-hand account, author Matthew Paul Turner shares amusing - sometimes cringe-worthy - and poignant stories about growing up in a fundamentalist household, where even well-intentioned contemporary Christian music was proclaimed to be of the devil.

Churched is a collection of stories that detail an American boy's experiences growing up in a culture where men weren't allowed to let their hair grow to touch their ears (an abomination), women wouldn't have been caught dead in a pair of pants (unless swimming), and the pastor couldn't preach a sermon without a healthy dose of hellfire and brimstone. Matthew grapples with the absurdity of a Sunday School Barbie burning, the passionate annual boxing match between the pastor and Satan, and the holiness of being baptized a fifth time - while growing into a young man who, amidst the chaotic mess of religion, falls in love with Jesus.

    " A funny and somewhat enlightening book about a culture I knew very little about. It wasn't quite as interesting as I hoped it would be. "

    " Listen to audio version of book. Entertaining memoir of growing up as a fundamentalist Baptist through his formidable years. "

    " It's the author's sometimes awkward, sometimes hitting-too-close-to-home-for-me, personal story about growing up in the Church. I really liked it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ken | 12/29/2010

    " Not good. Not funny. Not true. Not representative of all who are historic fundamentalists. Not worth your time. Not fair. "
