'Transparent, vulnerable, thought provoking, and gracious.'
'Thank you, my dear- est Sarah Bessey, for helping us find our way back home.'
'Honest, sober, and encouragingly relatable.'
From the popular blogger and provocative author of Jesus Feminist comes a riveting new study of Christianity that helps you wrestle with - and sort out - your faith.
In Out of Sorts, Sarah Bessey - award-winning blogger and author of Jesus Feminist, which was hailed as lucid, com-pelling, and beautifully written (Frank Viola, author of Gods Favorite Place on Earth) - helps us grapple with core Christian issues using a mixture of beautiful storytelling and biblical teaching, a style well described as narrative theology.
As she candidly shares her wrestlings with core issues - such as who Jesus is, what place the Church has in our lives, how to disagree yet remain within a community, and how to love the Bible for what it is rather than what we want it to be - she teaches us how to walk courageously through our own tough questions.
In the process of gently helping us sort things out, Bessey teaches us how to be as comfortable with uncertainty as we are with solid answers. And as we learn to hold questions in one hand and answers in the other, we discover new depths of faith that will remain secure even through the storms of life.
