Bob's Story: The Good Christian Son

In Bob’s story, we hear about how he views himself in terms of his cultural identity and the shifts that occurred in his religious life as a result of family relationships, his move from the South to the Northeast, and his rethinking about his role in society and in his family. He also talks about what influenced his first career choice as a minister in an evangelical Christian church and what accounted for the choice of his second career as a teacher. As you listen, pay attention to his shifts in personality traits and in his understanding of his religious affiliation and other shifts in his cultural identity.
