With gratitude and gentle humor, Lyn Cryderman reflects on his spiritual upbringing. But the memories are more than his alone. If you belong to the "baby boom" generation, Glory Land is a look back at your own past - at a simpler era, a gentler America, and the rich roots of an enduring faith. It is also a legacy to those born after the baby boom, a chance to enter the heart of a previous generation and discover why it cherishes the things it does. Cryderman shares with you a vital part of the world that shaped your parents and has influenced the person you are today. Like an album of treasured photographs, Glory Land is filled with faces and images. Some are funny, some are poignant, all are richly human. . . . The Teft Road gang in Spring Arbor, Michigan Sunday school teachers and attendance contests Bible stories brought to life with scene-o-felts and chalktalks The crackling blaze of the church camp bonfire The foibles of high-school beach evangelism College days and soul searching during the Vietnam era From a missionary boyhood in Japan, to a young teenager's first, forbidden kiss at church camp, to the adult challenges of integrating faith with the realities of a culture far broader than his Free Methodist background, Cryderman takes you on a journey. It is a journey from youth to manhood, and from simple acceptance to questioning and reassessment - and ultimately, to reaffirmation of the faith of childhood. Not the non-essentials that once clouded the issue, but the enduring truths that lay underneath. Full of laughter, family love, the echoes of church songs, and the smell of white paste from long-ago Sunday school classes, Glory Land is our story, fondly tracing afaith whose tale will continue in generations to come.
