‘Brandan Robertson's Nomad is one man’s compelling account of moving beyond the boundaries of rigid religion, into an expansive true spirituality. Robertson's story is not just his own, but the story of a growing caravan of nomads who are discovering the beauty and complexity of faith and life in fresh ways. This book is a trustworthy companion for anyone who is seeking to discover a new way of being in the world.’

Richard Rohr, O.F.M

'The thing about Brandan is he's really intelligent and he has a huge heart but he's also fearless, and it's that alchemy that makes him such a compelling voice for the new thing that Jesus is up to in the world.'

Rob Bell

‘Brandan Robertson is a courageous young man. He has dared to climb fences and explore new territory outside the back yard of his religious background. He has discovered the gift of asking questions, and the joy that comes from seeking understanding with other seekers. In addition, he is a graceful and insightful writer, as Nomad makes clear. I hope this is the first of many!'

Brian D. McLaren

‘The deeper I grow in my own faith as a Christian, the greater my desire to explore. My faith whets my appetite for discovering what God is doing in and through the world each and every day. This book is a chronicle of some of the most important lessons I have learned thus far. I write to encourage my fellow nomads who, like me, so often feel alone in their wanderings yet are a part of a much larger caravan of fellow wanderers seeking to discover for ourselves the meaning and mysteries of life.’

Part-autobiography, part-Christian spirituality, Nomad offers penetrating insight into the minds of the new generations of progressive evangelical followers of Jesus in the global Church. Themes include: community, war, redemption, wonder, grace, sexuality and the Eucharist. Nomad was originally commissioned and written for Destiny Image but the publisher cancelled the contract because Brandan refused to say that he did ‘not condone, encourage or accept the homosexual lifestyle’. DLT is proud to offer Brandan’s book for all readers wishing to hear and understand his powerfully-written, graceful, whole-life spirituality.

Brandan Robertson is a evangelical thought-leader and commentator working at the intersections of spirituality, sexuality, and social renewal. He has written for TIME, The Washington Post, Religion News Service, and Dallas Morning News and regularly for Patheos, Sojourners, and The Huffington Post. He has been interviewed by outlets such as TIME Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and The Associated Press. A much sought-after speaker and consultant to churches, denominations, conferences and universities in North America, he will tour the UK and Ireland in June 2016.
