Cynthia Jeub was raised in a cult of
sorts. She is the 3rd oldest of 16 kids and her parents believed
God wanted them to avoid birth control of all kinds, and try to
breed as much as possible. Cynthia was to marry young and become a
baby-making handmaiden, after having been a sister-mom to her
younger siblings since childhood. Her family was highlighted on the
reality show "Kids By The Dozen".
Cynthia is now a freelance writer, blogger, and author. She
writes about the deconstruction of faith, mental illness, abuse
recovery, economic justice, and philosophy at cynthiajeub.com.
She is working on a memoir about her childhood, Music in the Dream
House, which is being sponsored through her Patreon.

Gary McDonald is a fifth generation Texan who now lives in
California. A practicing Buddhist, Gary has had a lifelong interest
in the origins of Christianity. These two strands culminated in his
first book THE GOSPEL OF THOMAS (THE YOUNGER), a post-modern novel
which is both a gospel and a novel that attempts to reboot the
Jesus mythology. The Gospel of Thomas (The Younger), while
telling a captivating story, also replaces a theology based on
deity worship with a prescription for living a full and happy life.
It offers a humanistic and secular view of Jesus and Christianity,
if such a thing is possible. It shows how Christianity took a wrong
turn early on and does its best to set it straight.
