Questions Are The Answer

nakedpastor And The Search For Understanding

by David Hayward


Price: £9.99
Publisher:DLT (Darton, Longman and Todd Ltd)
Published:30 July 2015

 A seriously intelligent, amusing and enjoyable book that to my mind deals honestly, wryly, rawly, and insightfully with how one transitions from being 'churched' to 'dechurched' maybe, or perhaps it's more honest to say it's about how one goes from being slap bang in the centre of a faith community to being instead one of the rising number of 'Nones'... that is not to say someone of No Faith but rather someone who chooses not to have an affilliation to one faith or denomination but is instead None of the above on the tick box sheets... but perhaps for all of that even more deeply effected by your own faith and spirituality than you were before.

It's a really helpful and fun book to read if you are one of those questioners and journeyers yourself, it's an insightful book to read if you are churched person trying to understand those that have journeyed away, it's an essential book for anyone dealing with fringe church or Fresh Expressions and wanting a good grounding in the questions and thoughts of those happily outside, and actually the cartoons make it a great book for anyone that likes humour with a smidge of truth about the faith journey and a way to start any number of group discussions!
