Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me
Full Product Description
At the age of sixteen, Ian Morgan Cron was told that his stockbroker father actually worked for the CIA. The story of this world-rocking discovery is the stepping-off point into a fascinating exploration of one man's alternately heartbreaking and humorous journey to faith and spiritual growth.
Born into a family of privilege and power, Ian's life is populated with colourful people and stories including the account of an alcoholic father who takes his family on a wild roller-coaster ride through wealth and poverty and back again. Includes tales of a nearly blind English nanny who teaches him what love means, a famous New York radio personality who saves his life, a simple carpenter who leads him to faith in Jesus, and his own personal journey from addiction to twenty-three years of sobriety.
Believers and seekers alike will be moved by how Ian uncovers and honours what is sacred in his story, how he discovers God in the struggle to find redemption, and how the mysterious movement and presence of God is woven throughout the adventure of his life.

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and MeGraham Wise, via The Good Book Stall
A Memoir of Sorts aptly describes this book, an autobiography outlining some of the significant events and memories in the author’s life. Brought up by a practicing Roman Catholic mother, in a family made dysfunctional by an alcoholic father, was not the best of starts for this young American boy. Not only was his father a violent drunk, he also worked covertly for the CIA. How could a boy make good in such a situation? Well, he did, via a journey that took him through a very dark valley, on a roller-coaster of unruly teenage years, through his own battle with alcoholism. It’s the story of a journey that eventually leads to faith and forgiveness, and distinctive Christian ministry as an Episcopal priest in Greenwich, Connecticut.
This is one of those easy to read, what happens next, kind of books, and is full of real characters who stand out of the page. It is very light and contains some American-English words of which the meaning will be completely lost on readers this side of the Atlantic. Nevertheless, an enjoyable read from beginning to end. The sort of book to take on holiday
