Read full description of the books Expecting Adam:This book was recommended to me as a wonderful read, filled with spiritual strength. Unfortunately, I had a very different experience with it. It greatly disturbs me that so many women have been duped by this book.
It's a memoir of Martha Beck's spiritual struggle as she gives birth to a son with Down Syndrome. In reality, it's the story of a woman's fall from truth and grace. She repeatedly rejected the hand of the Lord reaching out to her during her time of need. After I read the book, I researched Beck and saw how her choices had negatively impacted her life. The choices Beck made later in her life reinforced my feelings about this book.
Beck is a gifted writer. This book is extremely well written. Each time I put it down due to my uncomfortable feelings, I felt compelled to pick it up again and continue reading it. As I continued, I felt the Lord's Spirit withdraw from me. When I finished, I had to confess my disillusionment to those who recommended it to me. Through Beck's mastery of the written language, she fools many of her readers.
There are very few books that I would characterize as dangerous. This is one of them.
Read information about the authorI grew up wanting to be an ecologist or a professor. However, after bearing three children while acquiring three Harvard degrees, I decided I’d rather just lie down for a few decades. During that time I became an author and life coach. My books include Expecting Adam, Leaving the Saints, Finding Your Own North Star, The Joy Diet, Steering By Starlight, Finding Your Way in Wild New World, and The Martha Beck Collection: Essays for Creating Your Right Life, Volume 1. My most recent book, Diana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening, is part of a new trilogy I'm calling The Bewilderment Chronicles and it will be released in the spring of 2016. I’ve been a columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine since its inception in 2001.
As president of my company, Martha Beck, Inc., I continue to speak around the world, as well as offer virtual teleclasses and in-person workshops a few times a year, primarily at my ranch on the Central Coast of California, where I live with my partner, Karen, and my son, Adam. I also train life coaches worldwide with my life coach training program.
When not covering myself in bird seed and sitting outside in nature, I am painting or writing book 2 of The Bewilderment Chronicles.
