Maggie Rowe


"Sin Bravely: Memories of Spiritual Disobedience"

As a young girl, Maggie Rowe took the idea of salvation very seriously. Growing up in a moderately religious household in suburban Chicago, her fear of eternal damnation turned into a childhood terror that drove her to become an outrageously dedicated born-again Christian. Finally, at nineteen, crippled by her fear of sin and eternal damnation, she checked herself in to an Evangelical psychiatric facility, and that is where her journey really began. Learn how one woman finally found the middle ground between Heaven and Hell.

Her book, Sin Bravely: A Memoir of Spiritual Disobedience, will be on sale following the program.
