[nice tight copy, bottom corners bumped but otherwise no significant wear, previous owner's bookplate on ffep; jacket shows just mild handling wear]. (B&W photographs) The author "was born Tonica Marlow to a British evangelist father and an Egyptian Jewish mother. At the time of her birth, her father was already a full-fledged Protestant minister with an established congregation, and their household revolved exclusively around the church. At the age of sixteen, Tova was accepted as the youngest student at a noted Christian theological college, and within four years she had become an ordained minister. Her influence as a preacher, artist, and composer of Christian literature extended to all corners of the earth. And yet with all of her successful activity, she could not explain the deep pain she felt inside. She began to wonder about the incomplete logic behind many of the church teachings and practices; about the administration's questionable treatment of her family; about her mother's Jewish heritage. She asked questions, but the answers she received did not satisfy her. And so she began to search. This is the story of her remarkable quest for her true heritage."
