Why You Should Read, “An Irreligious Faith”


You have some questions.

  • You wonder about what it means to live life in the way of Jesus, but haven’t found what you’re looking for in the church.
  • You have honest questions about the faith, but haven’t found them welcomed (or answered.)
  • You are puzzled by the gap between the life and teachings of Jesus, and the doctrines and practices of the church.

You have left the institutional church.

  • You are wondering what’s next.
  • You think you might be a heretic.
  • You lost a bunch of your friends in the process.
  • You wonder if there is a legitimate way to live life in the way of Jesus without being a part of the institutional church.

You are a disillusioned or former pastor.

  • You are tired of dealing with the dissonance between your church responsibilities and your questions.
  • You are wondering about a new career, but all of your training and experience has been in church leadership.

You have rarely, if ever, darkened the doors of a church.

  • You find the life Christ lived very compelling, but feel disconnected with the church.
  • You wonder why faith expression in separated from the regular course of life.
