Having spent a few years of my childhood at Prairie Bible Institute, I was fascinated to read this book. It is an expose into the influence of American fundamentalism on PBI, which Callaway is particularly skilled at telling; but it is more than that for those of us who grew up there. I found myself gleaning bits and pieces of the memories of my past and finding new clarity about things I had always misunderstood. Looking through the lens of the influence of American fundamentalism on PBI, I understood the founder and some of the most prominent teachers of the school in a new light.
I would recommend this book to anyone wants to know the true history of Prairie Bible Institute as well as anyone who was involved in fundamentalism. It is a must read for every student and staff who lived at Prairie.
