The daughter of esteemed Brooklyn Tabernacle’s pastor and Grammy Award-winning choir director reveals what once drove her away from her family — and her faith. In a new book, “Girl In The Song (Tyndale Momentum), Chrissy Cymbala Toledo exposes the stark contrast between her model Christian upbringing and the darkness and brokenness she faced as a teen and young adult.

Ejected from Bible college, sleeping on couches and struggling to care for a newborn — the result of an unplanned pregnancy — Cymbala Toledo was trapped in a world more desperate than she ever imagined, when light broke through from an unexpected direction.

“Girl In The Song” offers an honest, unvarnished glimpse into what happens when the real-life heartache and triumph of a family, whose ministry centered on saving others, nearly lost one of its very own.
