    Description

    New York Times best-selling author Rachel Held Evans embarks on a quest to find out what it really means to be part of the Church.

    Like millions of her millennial peers, Rachel Held Evans didn't want to go to church anymore. The hypocrisy, the politics, the gargantuan building budgets, the scandals - Church culture seemed so far removed from Jesus. Yet despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing her back. And so she set out on a journey to understand the Church and to find her place in it.

    Centered around seven sacraments, Evans' quest takes listeners through a liturgical year with stories about baptism, communion, confirmation, confession, marriage, vocation, and death that are funny, heartbreaking, and sharply honest.

    A memoir about making do and taking risks, about the messiness of community and the power of grace, Searching for Sunday is about overcoming cynicism to find hope and, somewhere in between, Church.

    Everything I love and hate about the church

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Searching for Sunday?

    After reflecting on everything wrong in today's American churches, Rachel Held Evans reminded me that rooting for the demise of "those" Christians isn't helping, either. It was a humbling reminder that we all have work to do.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story about the young gay Christian in the chapter "Enough" had me in tears.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is funny, moving, and inspiring. Every Christian should read it.

    Her best yet

    I think this is RHE's best book so far. She's honest and humble. The humility was a pleasant surprise! I love how she uses the sacraments to make her own journey. Beautifully written and ruggedly honest account of her church journey so far. I sense she's just beginning to see that her church journey and her spiritual journey are two related, but different, things.

    Giving words to some of what spins in my own head

    While I don't necessarily agree with everything RHE says in this book, she has a remarkable ability of putting into words many of the same things spinning around in my own head. We live in a Christian society that frowns on anyone questioning evangelical mainstream thought, yet if we are honest, the questions Rachel addresses are the very ones going around in our own heads. Where can we safely turn to address these questions? This is a good place to start.

    Loved it

    Honesty, color, personality and intellect shine in this book. It explores questions many are asking, but that church struggles to answer. Bless you for your project, Rachel!

    Spot On!

    I grew up in the Presbyterian Church, as the daughter of two Presbyterian pastors. Rachel Held Evans is my hero with this book. I have loved the church, left the church, loved the church, sought the church, and in many ways I am still searching for it. Jesus’ bride: we are broken, healing, and clinging to the fact that we are fully known and fully loved.

    Wonderful!!!

    A poignant and timely book. If you go, or have ever been, to church -- this is an absolute must read.

    Compelling and Honest

    I think Rachel has an incredible accuracy when speaking about church and for a certain demographic of its members. I grew up in church, have had many wounds from it, and yet, am sitting in a place of leading a local church. I feel the tension this book invokes on a daily basis. I am so happy that there are so many millennials that would stand and fight for the Church to move forward in grace, humility, and love.

    50% perfect, 50% over my head

    As a Gen-Xer raised in the evangelical church, about half this book resonated so perfectly with me that I should probably be given co-authorship credit. The other half (mostly the abstract, "poetic" parts) went in one ear and out the other. Still, I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

    A must read!

    A must read for those in (and out of) the church.

    Rachel Held-Evans has put the very cry of my heart into words ... Beautiful words. Although we have different origin stories, it seems that we have come to many of the same perspectives, conclusions, and desires for the church.

    I really enjoyed it

    I didn't learn who RHE was until she was sick. This is the first book of hers that I have read, and it is clear why so many people mourn her loss. She attacks the structure of the church, which has increasingly become more partisan and exclusive. Not coincidentally, the number of people going to church has fallen pretty dramatically. Yet she navigates through all of that to find and worship God. I highly recommend this book for believers and nonbelievers alike.
