How fortunate that John Fear decided to write the story of his life as a member of the Exclusive Brethren faith and his life beyond the faith, but still serving the God whom he loved. There was no trace of on-going bitterness towards the sect when the adult author and his young family left the faith although it meant that relationships with extended family were severed. One of the fascinating aspects of the book was John's descriptions of life as a child, placing everything in its appropriate historical perspective. What struck a strong chord with me also, was John's many and long absences from his home and family, as he served his Christian faith, through various forms of Christian media, generally in countries away from where his family lived in Great Britain. One can only imagine the stresses this must have placed not only on John but especially on his wife and children.
This is a fascinating story and it is to Robert Fear's credit, that he took on the task of editing his father's memoir. John Fear originally wrote of his memories because he wanted his children, grandchildren, and their children, to have knowledge of their family history. How much wealthier would be the education of our children, grandchildren and succeeding generations if we all followed John Fear's idea of writing our family history in one form or another, for our descendants to read and understand from whom and whence they are descended.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending this book as one that will enthrall you for any number of reasons. Whatever your interest, history, family relationships, the Christian faith, or media, you will not be disappointed in reading this memoir.
