The best part of this book was the last chapter. The rest of the book is hard to read because its boring. It really just repeats over and over the same story. There was no real insight into this group or the writers family. It was a snoozer.

I just finished reading Banished. It was interesting and she's courageously shared enlightening details of her journey with her family and Westboro Baptist Church. A weaker person would likely not have come through this in one piece. It's hard to imagine those in the grip of WBC being freed from their fears and narrow focus apart from the love and mercy of the hateful God they promote. A book worth every penny!

I'm not very good at reviews but I'll do my best to sum up why I like this book so much. Not only does it dive into the values and beliefs of the controversial 'Westboro Baptist Church', it also went into Drain's family life and the trauma of being cut off from one's family. It was tragic but also fascinating. I couldn't stop reading until I had finished the book.

This was an interesting look into the Westboro Baptist Church. It's surprising that the author was banished from the "church" rather than wanting to leave, as corrupt as it is.

This was very interesting, it makes you once again remember that we should all go to the Bible the living word of God and make absolute certain that what is being taught in Church is not taken out of context. God's word when read in whole is the only guide line anyone should follow. Such damage can be done when someone makes up their own rules...
