An autobiographical description of how a Southern Baptist preachers kid (Charles McGinty) totally steeped in the prejudices and narrow fundamentalist thinking of his parents and culture (early 20th century Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky and Southeastern Missouri) ultimately, through his experience in the Navy and in medical school, learned to see that all religions have merit and none have an exclusive window on God or truth.

The book describes the authors soul-searching struggles with the issues of sex, racial prejudice, abortion, homosexuality, the role of women, and other taboos of his Sunday School faith and how has resolved them all and found peace.
