Previously titled, Evolving in Monkey Town, Faith Unraveled is the story of New York Times bestselling author and popular blogger, Rachel Held Evans, who grew up in the buckle of the Bible Belt but found herself asking tough questions about her Christian faith as a young adult.
Eighty years after the Scopes Monkey Trial made a spectacle of Christian fundamentalism and brought national attention to her hometown, Rachel Held Evans faced a trial of her own when she began to have doubts about her faith. In Faith Unraveled, Rachel recounts growing up in a culture obsessed with apologetics, and struggling as her own faith unraveled, one unexpected question at a time.
In order for her faith to survive, Rachel realizes, it must adapt to change and evolve. Using as an illustration her own spiritual journey from certainty to doubt to faith, Evans challenges readers to disentangle their faith from false fundamentals and to trust in a God who is big enough to handle tough questions. In a changing cultural environment where new ideas seem to threaten the safety and security of the faith, Faith Unraveled is a fearlessly honest story of survival.
