Christian School Confidential
a fundamental satire
"Dwayne Walker has been able to capture the truth of abuse that stayed in silence for too long. It's truly a page turner. One I did in one sitting and a book I would read again." Wayanne Kruger, National Child Advocate/Author
Is the successful prosecution of a child abuser necessary in order to put the past behind us? Are those who have been cheated by an inept prosecution to be denied closure?
Sarah Starr teaches fifth grade English at Diadem Christian Academy in Crane City, California. Adam, her husband, is pursuing a masters in biblical studies when both learn troubling news. Chelsea, their daughter, claims she has been abused by Dr. Roger Bunyan, Jr, the founder of their bible college and former pastor of Diadem Baptist Church.
Sarah and Adam want to do the right thing by scripture. Instead of withdrawing her from Diadem Christian Academy, they keep Chelsea at Diadem to teach her that Christians can resolve their differences in a godly manner. Sarah's odyssey takes her on an insane journey into the absurdities of fundamentalism, Christian education, abusive children's homes, mission board policies, internet advocacy, politics, entertainment and mass media evangelism until she witnesses the disturbing, but inevitable, conclusion.
Christian School Confidential spans three generations of abuse. This novel demonstrates how true closure can be found in a society where both the justice system and religious institutions actively work to sabotage that goal.
