A few weeks ago, I was contacted by our local newspaper to comment on the book review I did for Amazon.com on Stacy McDonald’s book Passionate Housewives Desperate for God.
Today there were three articles that ran in the PJS, one on Stacy’s book, one on James McDonald’s church, and one that addressed my negative book review.
Since my blog address was given in the newspaper, I thought it might be helpful for those who have come here for the first time to have the links handy where many of us who have read the book have attempted to ask straightforward questions of Stacy regarding what she has referred to as “misunderstandings.” It is also important for readers here to understand that she invited herself to be interviewed by me on a podcast and when, instead, I called for people to ask their questions of Stacy here and have even offered her the space to do so, I have yet, months later, to receive so much as a private e-mail response from her.
I would encourage others to ask these questions, especially if you came here after reading the PJS articles and wonder, as one commenter on the PJS forum site did, why the “obsession” over this book and these teachings. Any thoughtful and honest reader of this book will obviously see the inconsistencies (many call them hypocrisies) that are abundant as you compare them with other Vision Forum writings, the personal information give by Stacy, and other essays, blogs, and books by the same authors. Since this author lives in my own neck of the woods, it is especially important for me to be sure that homeschooling moms in this area understand the genuine teachings and agenda behind this book and to seek clarification, publicly, whenever possible.
Here is the list of links to the PJS articles on keep and share.
