Summary "A compelling memoir and account of the Independent Fundamental Baptist Church and its shocking history of religious abuse. Jocelyn Zichterman was born, raised, married in to, and finally, with her family, fled the Independent Fundamental Baptist Church, which was founded by the fiery preacher Bob Jones. With several hundred thousand members, the IFB insists that congregants must not associate with members of other Baptist denominations and evangelicals. The church also emphasizes secrecy, insular marriages within the church, subservience for women, and unusual child raising practices"--Book jacket.
