Between a Church and a Hard Place : At age thirty-six, Andrew Park hit a parenting snag. Teaching his children about ethics, good manners, and the perfect free throw posed no problem. But when they started asking about religion, he came up empty-handed. He was raised faith-free in a household of nonbelievers. Confronted with the responsibilities of being a young father, Park knew it was his place to find the answers to his children's questions about spirituality - and perhaps some of his own. Between a Church and a Hard Place is the often funny, yet deeply tender story of that quest. Though Park and his wife are not religious, Between a Church and a Hard Place doesn't so much struggle with God as it struggles with whether to struggle with God. From megachurches to Humanism Seminars, Park explores the polar reaches of religion in our country while trying to find a comfortable middle ground for himself and his family. With the perfect blend of humor and humility, he uncovers what it means to embrace religion - or not - while still being a good role model, and most important, still being true to himself.
