GROWING UP CHRISTIAN Searching for a Reasonable Faith in the Heartland of America A MEMOIR Stan Williams was born into a Bible believing, Evangelical home. But he was utterly confounded by all the versions of Christianity around town. Each claimed to be the exclusive caretaker of truth and interpreter of the Bible. Yet, each disparaged the others. Who had the truth? Why was the church he was raised in "right" and everyone else "wrong?" Was everyone out of step except his little denomination? How could that be true? The last place he considered was Roman Catholicism. He was taught Catholics were not Christians. And so, his life became a fascinating, odd, and sometimes humorous journey of faith. It led him where he least expected. From a little boy seeking adventure, to a denomination-hopping man crisscrossing America's Christian landscape, Stan entertains and challenges us with over a 100 stories of his intrepid journey as he searched for a spiritual home that embraced both the faith of his fathers and the reason of natural law.

Reading Growing Up Christian will explain:

How faith demands reason, and vice versa How risk-taking accelerates life-lessons How religious practice connects with reality How perseverance is related to purpose, and How Providence requires concrete action.

"Master storyteller Stan Williams raises the genre of conversion stories to the level of an epic. Growing Up Christian's rapid-fire chapters provides entertaining and insightful vignettes into growing up as a Protestant in the 1950s, the unfolding of his vocation to story writing and filmmaking, and his eventual entry into the Catholic Church. Intermixed with humorous anecdotes and comments, Stan gives the reader a front row seat to the intellectual and emotional struggles that eventually led him to discover that Protestantism just isn't workable, and that the last thing on earth he'd ever regard as a viable alternative, the Catholic Church, had the answers he was looking for. I highly recommend Growing Up Christian to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. It's a fascinating page turner, an epic adventure, and a conversion story on steroids...all wrapped up into one."
