What People Say

"Moving, eye-opening, shocking and even suspenseful . . . Christa Brown does not hold back in this courageous account of her journey from impressionable clergy sex abuse victim to tenacious advocate."
-- Luci Westphal, filmmaker, All God's Children

"Christa Brown had me pacing and angry after just a few chapters … oh hell, the book pulled all my strings. In the end, I could not put it down."
-- Mojoey, blogger, Deep Thoughts

"Frightening, heart-breaking, gripping, and an incredibly thorough account. Christa maps out and documents, step by step. . . the utter indifference of the Southern Baptist Convention and the outright contempt it has demonstrated for victims of abuse by its own clergy."
-- Jeri Massi, author, Schizophrenic Christianity

"You will weep with her, and you will cheer for her. This Little Light pierces the darkness."
-- Foremost Press

"This book should rightly make any honest Christian furious . . . as one reads page after page of the twisted, lie-filled and hypocritical response of the Southern Baptist bureaucracy."
-- Rev. Thomas Doyle, J.C.D., author, Sex Priests and Secret Codes

"Despite the extraordinary recalcitrance of Baptist officials, Christa's story is not one of fatalism and bitterness, but of courage and hope."
-- David Clohessy, National Director, Survivors' Network of those Abused by Priests

"Christa Brown is a courageous, tenacious campaigner against sexual abuse among Southern Baptist clergy -- some of whom have taken it upon themselves to lecture the nation on personal morality. As this book so ably demonstrates, clergy sex abuse is not confined to the Catholic Church.
-- Mark I. Pinsky, author, A Jew Among the Evangelicals

Christa Brown "has become the public face of victims of abuse who hope to force the Baptist church to acknowledge their allegations and take concrete action to identify and sanction abusers."
-- Austin American-Statesman
