Book Review: Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me


Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me: A memoir…of sorts
By
Ian Morgan Cron

Ian Morgan Cron is now an Episcopal priest, but judging by his youth, one would never have guessed that would be come his profession. At the age of 16, he learned that his alcoholic, stock broker father was actually a CIA agent. This revelation rocked his already shaky world and led him down a path of addiction and discovery. No matter where he was in his life God continually placed him in circumstances where he was aware of something much bigger than himself.  His is a true story of how God will search you out wherever you are, no matter the depths of your fall. 

With such an interesting title, I expected a lot more out of this book than I received. It seems like the type of book that could contain a large number of rather detailed, interesting stories, but the reader is merely given glimpses of such stories. Based on what I read in these pages, I feel like there’s a much bigger, deeper story Ian could tell. Maybe that’s not what his intention was for the book or maybe he can’t remember it all, but I feel like there could be so much more here.   Overall, it’s a good book with some really interesting parts, but nothing that really grabbed me and made turn the pages late into the night.
