If you grew up in Sunday school, Wednesday evening prayer meetings, Bible camp, and Youth Group-and especially if you can still hold your own in a sword drill-get ready to laugh and reminisce! Just As We Were is a nostalgic, humorous, and affectionate look at church life in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Now with more fun-spirited photography and church memorabilia, this tongue-in-cheek book inspires flashbacks with short reflections, humorous quotes, and self-quizzes. Readers will find everything about growing up born again, including:
- Tell-tale signs of a born again home. Hint: Add 5 points for each picture of Jesus in the Garden and subtract 50 points for each illuminated Santa Claus - Memorization of Bible verses, books of the Bible (in order, and quickly), and Sunday School songs complete with proper hand motions - Youth do's and don'ts, including acceptable conditions for roller skating and the dangers of playing cards - Perfect attendance pins, Vacation Bible School, and a guide to games to play during Sunday morning service (Hangman or Dots, anyone?)
First published as Growing Up Born Again in 1987, Just As We Were is the perfect book for readers who grew up in a church family that declared itself born again-or for anyone who wondered what really went on in all those church meetings.
