LINDA BRANDI CATEURA depicts an extraordinary canvas of Protestants today. From an unlikely mix of people of different races, color and lifestyle, she introduces a "new" Protestant establishment that is bringing vivid life to an old religion. In these memoirs that she drew from personal interviews, she persuaded a wide range of believers of many cloths and backgrounds to speak out and openly reveal their inner thoughts, conflicts and aspirations. Not excluding traditional members, these memoirs include born-again Christians, ex-Catholics, gays, lesbians, shamanists, Confucians, Koreans, Chinese, and store-front Hispanics, many of whom are adding color and exoticism to a somewhat fading fabric.
