Dolon Hickmon’s book 13:24 is a both a crime novel and a harrowing trip into the Christian “physical disipline” subculture built around books like To Train Up a Child (regular listeners will be familiar with this subject from Episode 4. with Peter Mosley and his experiences with his parents application of the teachings of Bill Gothard). Andy and Jack invite Dolon to talk about his own experiences as a child in this subculture, and using those experiences to deliver a powerful critique of how these methods can lead to systematic abuse and long term psychological damage.
I’m not going to kid around, this episode gets pretty dark.
