Why I Left / Why I Stayed: Conversations on Christianity Between an Evangelical Father and His Humanist Son, by Tony Campolo and Bart Campolo (San Francisco: HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, 2017, ISBN 978-0062415370). 160 pp. Hardcover, $24.99.
If you’re going to move to a strange country, it never hurts to learn the language. The failure to do so by Bart Campolo, who did the moving, and his father Tony Campolo, who ought to have known better, seats a profound error at the heart of Why I Left / Why I Stayed. It is an otherwise valuable short book.
