Publisher's Summary

A building crescendo of developments, culminating in evangelical support for the Trump presidency, has led many evangelicals to question the faith they inherited. If being Christian means rejecting LGBTQ persons and supporting systemic racism, perhaps their Christian journey is over.

David Gushee offers a new way forward for disillusioned post-evangelicals by first analyzing what went wrong with US White evangelicalism in areas such as evangelical identity, biblical interpretation, church life, sexuality, politics, and race. Gushee then proposes new ways of Christian believing, belonging, and behaving, helping post-evangelicals from where they are to a living relationship with Christ and an intellectually cogent and morally robust post-evangelical faith. After Evangelicalism shows that it is possible to follow Jesus out of evangelical Christianity, and more than that, it's necessary.

An understanding of evangelicals in the US

I have struggled with my faith for the past several years. I know what Jesus preached, and what I’ve seen in the US has been in confit to with that. This book is helping me continue to believe in Jesus and ask the important questions of religion.

Awesome book

Very thought provoking and timely book. I love Gushee’s unguarded honesty and that he is not afraid to be totally transparent about what he believes. I have finished 3 of his books now and have really benefited from them and my understanding of various topics has been confirmed and greatly expanded. Thank you. I also really enjoy Adam Verner’s reading.

Thoughtful

I enjoy David Gushee. I find him fair, thorough and thoughtful. He's been a helpful guide through my own faith journey.

I also enjoy Adam Verner's narration. I feel he captures the spirit of the author and conveys the material with sensitivity.

Bold clarity

I loved this book!!!! I have followed this author's journey with the books he has written in past, they have taken me through my own deconstruction from Evangelicalism to the present. Given today's current events in the American political climate, this book helped tie it all together for me. I like how the author has divided each chapter with prelude and then ending with chapter "takeaways". I love how the book has established a chronological order of events and their effects.
