This is a very personal narrative where the author sets out to uncover a perceived injustice perpetuated on a distant relative by the Baptist church. The author honestly discloses that he is an atheist (fair enough) but his harsh critique of the Christian faith is at times gratuitous and ill informed. His theological knowledge is just sufficient to inoculate him from the reality of Christianity. His dogged research is highly commendable, but it becomes obvious that he comes to the subject from a pre conceived position. I found it interesting to learn about Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome which is the key to unravelling this mystery. The book is well worth reading as it goes part way in explaining the complexity and variety of human sexual identity.
