While not a terrible book it was a disappointment I guess I had some unrealistic expectations after finding out that Madeira played with Phil Keaggy and Emmylou Harris a friend and I recently saw him with Emmylou at a concert in Cedar Falls Iowa I thought he d come across as conservative his father was a Baptist minster but that was not the case While I did enjoy his stories of the musical collaborations he s been involved in his liberal view of God as being partly feminine he favorably mentioned The Shack and his stance on gays in the church provided the biggest disappointments While some of his criticism of Evangelicalism is warranted his own brand of religion smacked of the same liberal self righteousness that now dominates the newsHis mocking the Midwest seemed unfounded until you consider the fact that he was rejected by Wheaton College in Illinois and wound up at Taylor University in Indiana Then again maybe Madeira is a rebel His second chapter Southern by the Grace of God makes me think he might have Charlie Daniels The South s Gonna Do It Again on his playlist Anyway crediting God grace with his own decision to proclaim he was from South Carolina doesn t really jibe with the rest of the book He calls himself a bluesman and seems to make some connection between the blues and the south News flash The blues is not uniue to the southMadeira appears to have retained his rebellious spirit throughout his life and seems to be stranded somewhere between heaven and hell I hope and pray he finds his way But if he does make it to heaven I hope God puts him in something akin to the Midwest
