Growing Up Evangelical: A Woman's First-Hand Account

In Pure, an insider’s account of the culture of purity imposed on young women raised in the evangelical Christian faith, Linda Kay Klein unmasks the traumatic fear-mongering that she endured as an adolescent. Writing Pure led her to congregations across the nation. She discusses her journey, bridging the church’s sexual shaming with wider societal subjugations of women, in this conversation with former New York Times “On Religion” columnist Samuel Freedman.
