Item Description...
A little boy sang in Sunday school, "I've got a home in glory land that outshines the sun...". The boy grew up to be a father, a husband, and a busy man with a career. Do the echoes of that Sunday school song still reverberate in his life? Do they still have meaning, now that he's an adult?

Meet Lyn Cryderman. And go back in time with him to that long ago Sunday when millions of children were being taught "Jesus loves me, this I know...". This warm, funny, and encouraging memoir looks fondly and humorously at the lessons we learned in Sunday school so long ago.

And it asks what those lessons mean to us today. Does "Trust and Obey" still work when our teenagers openly question the faith that we desperately want to pass on to them? Did the chalk artists and magicians and college quartets and visiting missionaries give us enough spiritual grit to weather the storms of adulthood at the end of the millennium?

Glory Land reminds the reader that the teachings of the faith are timeless and that we must hold fast to the basic, universal truths we were introduced to in the churches of our childhood. This wise, wonderful, and witty memoir reminds us that God's truth can always be trusted, no matter how times change.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I felt the story of GLORY LAND was my story, too.  Jul 23, 1999
Rarely has such a small book carried such a big surprise for me. GLORY LAND captures every Baby Boomer's heart IF they grew up churched. While the geography and names were different, Lyn Cryderman's story was my story, too. His memoirs served to reactivate my own memories of growing up in the turbulent, radical sixties as one of those "good kids" in church. The graphic recollections and honest, sometimes humorous admissions embrace the reader and then lead the reader to a heart-melting conclusion. GLORY LAND redeemed all the embarrassment, shame, and even the irritating feelings I had about my conservative, religious upbringing. GLORY LAND, while one person's story, becomes all the readers' stories. The author, then, stuns us with the gracious fact that we actually grew up in the Greatest Story of all--God's story. And the ending to that story...hey! it's awesome!
Garrison Keillor Meets Adrian Plass  May 18, 1999
Blending Heartland humor with tongue-in-church-cheek persiflage, "Glory Land" has solved a profound mystery for me. Each Sunday as our eight-year-old Preacher's Kid wiggles in a front row pew, I wonder if she sees church life differently than those of us who volunteered to come. Rather than remain pew bound, this child sinks to her knees with her back to her father. Using pew seat as writing desk, her stylus fills a magic silver slate. As my middle aged vibrato breaks in mid-hymnody, she looks up from her work and stares me down with a toothless grin. Then her eyes drop back down and she scribbles furiously. Thanks to Lyn Cryderman, I now know what she is doing. She is writing a book like "Glory Land."

Growing up in a similar pew, Cryderman had his sights set on all us church mice. His sacred diary is a warm and playful one. The mere mortals he describes make a congregation into a community and a church far more than mortar and bricks. Pastoral families can take heart that a PK can come away from childhood with an unquenchable passion to be part of a local family of faith. This is a great read for those who find Sunday morning worship the high point of their week.

Made to feel grateful for "a lifetime in church"  May 17, 1999
I am about the same age as the author, grew up in the same denomination he did, experienced church much the same as he did, attended the same Christian college at the same time he was there, went to the same church across the street from the college, and know many of the same people he writes about. Yet until reading his book I have taken for granted how much that same background means to me. Even though a minister I have always had sort of a love-hate relationship with "the church." But while reading the last chapter--in my opinion the best in the book--I cried, and then upon finishing it, literally dropped to me knees and thanked God for the privilege of "a lifetime in church." Thanks, Lyn. See you in Glory Land!
A Wonderful Trip  May 5, 1999
While reading "Glory Land" I was taken on a wonderful trip to a wonderful place that I haven't been to in a long, long time. Thank you Lyn Cryderman for making me cry, laugh out loud, and seriously consider those who, during the course of my life, have been instrumental in helping me find my way to the cross. Praise the Lord.
