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.

I laughed, I cried, I felt understood

In this book, I heard some of my own never-voiced thoughts articulated clearly and thoughtfully. I am now and likely always will be a committed member of an evangelical faith community, but I've been realizing for a few years now that there must be something I'm missing. Rachel's journey lived out my deepest longings and desires... and her experiences can offer wisdom and insight to anyone willing to receive.
I was so sad to learn that she died suddenly a year ago, and I'm thankful she was brave enough to live a life that ignites transformative change in myself and so many others.

Blessed by Rachel's Honesty

As someone who has grown up in the church and now works in ministry, I could relate to Rachel's honest conversation about facing her doubts and questions while still loving and desiring community in the form of church. This book was such a blessing to read. I love that she doesn't answer all the questions (as many Christian writers attempt to do) but rather allows some to remain unanswered as I, the reader, search alongside her on this journey. Sadly, I discovered her ministry in the twilight of her time here on earth with us. She has left such a legacy behind in her books and online presence. May God bless her husband and children as they move on from their great loss.

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.

Searching for a biblical worldview

First, I did listen to the entire book. Rachel is an excellent writer with a great vocabulary. I would encourage her to remove all the labels and adjectives from her prose. She is a staunch defenslder of her progressive positions and that is her right. I just side on a biblical worldview not a progressive worldview on Chriastity. All the best on your continuing search. Blessings to you and your family.

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.

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.

Don't bother

I would not recommend this to anyone she is blatantly anti catholic and has no regard for people who don't fit her mold--yet expects respect from the very folk she denigrates

Pure Arrogance

What disappointed you about Searching for Sunday?

I have heard about Rachel Held Evans. I knew I would most likely disagree with her, but I decided to check her out for myself. There were a few things I could relate to: a lot of church youth groups (at least back in my youth) focused more on silly games and fun activities than that on discovering who Jesus is. Like Rachel, I was a goody-goody church girl, full of self-righteousness and quick to judge. BUT, that is where the similarity stops. After maturing and growing in my faith, and after years of having God remove me from my comfort zone more times than I can count, I have come to even more of a realization of who God is and who I am NOT. He is the author of my salvation; He knit me together in my mother's womb; He is the sovereign creator of the universe, yet knew how to draw a little girl in a tiny, rural town to Himself and wash her clean. He sometimes He works in ways I do not understand. BUT if I believe that He is GOOD and that He is HOLY and that He is LOVE, I either learn to trust and believe Him, or I decide I know better than He does, and thus decide to create my own version of God...one who is less offensive, less cut and dried, and ultimately much less powerful. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, I believe, trust, and obey. This kind of arrogant "I know better than God" theology will send people straight to Hell. We can grapple with Him, and we certainly have seasons of doubt. We eventually come back to the same question: do I believe that God is Who He says He is, or not? If so, I trust that His ways and His word are good, holy, and righteous. The best way to show love and grace to people is to introduce them to the source of Love and Grace. Don't water down scripture and present a distorted version of God the Father and God the Son just to make the gospel more palatable.

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!

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.

Wonderful!!!

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