Would you listen to The World in Flames again? Why?
Probably not, once is enough. I just wanted to really understand someone who has been part of a controlled religion because I could relate to some of it.
What did you like best about this story?
The way the story was presented with the authors family life. He took you through the circumstances and the reasons why they did a lot of things that they did. Also, his confusion regarding his religion. It amazes me that how gullible we as humans are when we are brought up in our lives to believe something no matter how strange it may be.
What about C. S. Treadway’s performance did you like?
The way he adjusted his reading when characters changes in order to let you know that there were more narratives within this story. I was able to visualize the people in my own mind. Whether it was a woman or a man, it made it easy for me to decipher which character was on the scene.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, not at all. I ended up with feeling as if I could relate to the character. Being that it was a book regarding religion, I understood what it meant to truly believe something is true and have it crumble to pieces upon finding that your religion isn't everything that you grew up to believe. To find out that those who are writing the rules for you and punishing you according to "Bible standards" are drenched in corruption and conspiracy.
Any additional comments?
Prof. Jerald Walker wrote a convincing memoir. It was excellent. I was impressed by it so much that I will also be buying a hard copy of it for my library. Thank you so much for an insightful look at the World Wide Church of God, Doomsday Cult and what it was like to grow up in it.
