Escaping Christianity is the fascinating account of leaving behind fundamentalism and finding and embracing the mystical side of the Bible. Escaping Christianity explores in great detail the metaphorical meaning behind baptism and communion. It is a great encouragement for those spiritual seekers looking for something more than what fear-based religions offer.
Barbara Symons is an ordained minister and tireless spiritual seeker whose experience in Christian fundamentalism spans her lifetime beginning at five years of age. After leaving the church in 1999, Barbara began to recognize the fear-based propaganda that most fundamentalism employs. Having spent forty-three years within Christian fundamentalism, ten of those years as an exorcist, Barbara has keen insight into this systematic religion and writes of her journey through deprogramming. Always captivated by unusual phenomena, Barbara has a vast repertoire of spiritual and metaphysical experiences from which to draw. She is a lecturer, teacher and writer who hopes to bring light to the mysteries that can be found within the historical stories of the Bible and beyond. Barbara resides in College Station, Texas and is married to Lyle. Together they have three children and five grandchildren. Website: www.BarbaraSymons.com
