Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith By Sarah Bessey
The follow-up to her bestselling Jesus Feminist, Sarah Bessey's Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith tells the story of how she moved from a first naiveti (when you accept everything unquestioningly) to doubt and then into a second naiveti (where you reengage with faith with new eyes and take responsibility for what you believe and do).
Chapters engage with the emotional and mental work of tossing out some things and reclaiming others within the realms of theology, reading the Bible, church, community, vocation, and more. Written by someone who understands the fear behind questioning-the fear of devaluing Scripture, questioning authority, and becoming a "wishy-washy" Christian who only read the parts of the Bible that suits them-her robust love of Jesus and warm recounting of her personal journey will encourage those seeking a robust, intellectually engaged, faith. 259 pages, softcover. Chapter discussion questions included.
