One of Those

Follow Lynn’s story as she was eager to leave high school, start college and be independent. Little did she know she was going to turn her life upside down as she entered the 60’s counterculture era with its hippies, drug and sexual revolution. It didn’t take Lynn long to lose her identity as high school valedictorian to a thief who embraced ‘sticking it to the man.’ Shortly after her 10-year class reunion, her life turned upside down when she met one of those—a young Christian man who knew what he believed and why. From atheist to missionary to Africa, you won’t want to miss this story.

This book was refreshingly honest, witty and almost impossible to put down. I felt as if I were right there with her as she attempted to make sense of the world around her. When she experienced the tender influence of a man who was a genuine believer, I saw her defenses begin to crumble, and I was rooting for her as she met challenge after challenge in Africa. What a great read!

Amazon Reviewer

Perhaps the most striking thing about this trip from atheism becoming a Christian missionary is how very real it is. Rather than hiding or glamorizing her past, Lynn reveals it with unusual honesty. At the same time, she does it without offensive language or details. The story of her opinion of Christians and Christianity coming into conflict with actual Christians is compelling and well written. Her adventures and misadventures in Africa are eye-opening. This book is thought-provoking and easy to read. I recommend it.
