Descripción del libro
This is a memoir (there wasn't a genre for memoir listed). I don't have a formal description yet; that is still to be written, and the following would not be used on the cover, but here's the gist: Accidental Jesus Freak is about my years as a Christian musician in the fundamentalist church during the 70s and early 80s. It encapsulates the tumultuous times, my marriage, and our involvement with Youth With a Mission (YWAM), as well as what it's like to be a woman in the patriarchic religious culture. Due to a traumatic experience with YWAM, I begin questioning the dogmatic teachings of the church and eventually find my way to personal freedom and choice. For those of you who do not know what a "Jesus Freak" is, this is taken from Wikipedia: "many members of the movement ... co-opted and embraced the term, and its usage broadened to describe a Christian subculture throughout the hippie and back-to-the-land movements that focused on universal love and pacifism, and relished the radical nature of Jesus's message." From the Urban dictionary: "Someone who displays an unusual or embarrassing amount of enthusiasm for Jesus. This term was first used in the 1960's in reference to the growing movement of radical, unconventional Christians who often displayed hippie leanings." Hope this helps.

My reader is a woman, like myself, who has been through emotional or physical abuse and who has struggled with self-confidence and knowing who she is. Ideally, my reader will still be struggling with some of this and will resonate with my story on a more immediate basis. She may have been raised in a fundamentalist church or was "born again" at some point. She feels dominated by men and criticized or not appreciated. She feels that she has to hide her true self. But she also isn’t sure what her true self is. She might be older and have already gone through what I did and enjoys the different take on our story and/or the validation for leaving. She might be younger and have young children and be questioning her role in her church or cult. Men who are questioning their feelings on these matters might also be interested, but I think this memoir will resonate more with women. The men who read and enjoy will be outliers. My reader may have had near brushes with fundamentalism and wonder what it would have been like. My reader may have lived during the Jesus Freak phase of our history and be curious about what it was like for those who joined the communes. My reader knows what it feels like to be insecure, uncertain of your future, and move around a lot. She will resonate with wanting a home.
