"Rooted in her experiences growing up in an Evangelical Christian family, Jamie Lee Finch's "You Are Your Own" offers an overview of Evangelicalism and the painful confusion and anxiety experienced under its demands. Finch explores the mechanisms of trauma and how fundamentalist denominations match the patterns connected with PTSD. She elaborates on the doubt, guilt, fear, and grief that haunt those leaving the Evangelical faith and offers an approach to help them recover healthy self-worth and resilience. A socio-historical analysis of Evangelical Christianity's religious trauma, "You Are Your Own" emerges from Finch's reconnaissance on her own life--her journals, her stories, her trauma--and offers advocacy for everyone harmed by fundamentalist faith"-- Amazon.
