Monelo was fourteen years old when he committed to a Pentecostal church. In this book he explores the consequences of the darker side of Pentecostalism in South Africa: the flawed leadership models, the objectionable conduct of foreign nationals, and the financial greed that characterises some Pentecostal churches. This is a gripping and personal account which is set against the backdrop of the author’s challenging family dynamics, the evolution of his faith in God, and a growing understanding of himself and the world as he matured into a man, a husband and a father.

Monelo deals elegantly with this important subject, managing to strike a balance between narrating what is essentially a confusing and distressing subject with an objectivity that avoids betraying the core tenets of Pentecostalism – to which he continues to hold.

This is a timely book with potential to ignite much conversation about the legacy of Pentecostalism.
