Product Description

An increasing number of believers are developing deeper and more critical questions about their Christian faith. Remaining committed to the church, they no longer feel attuned to its messages and at times have doubts about the sustainability of contemporary Christianity. In A Christianity Worth Believing, Doug Pagitt demonstrates how one can embrace such questions, explore new ways to answer them, deepen their faith. Addressing topics such as Jesus, sin, the Bible, humanity, church and the Kingdom of God, Pagitt approaches these topics in a personal and engaging way, offering readers a fresh and innovative new way of thinking about Christianity. Setting aside the worn and tired theological debates, Pagitt offers fresh insight to the hopeful message of Christ in this lively and accessible book!

Publisher's Description

A Christianity Worth Believing offers an engaging, 'come-with-me-on-a-journey-of-exploring-the-possibilities' approach to what it means to be a follower of Jesus in our day. Written by Doug Pagitt?a leading voice in the Emergent conversation—this beautifully written book weaves together theological reflections, Christian history, and his own story of faith transformation.

Pagitt invites readers to follow him as he tells the story of his un-churched childhood, his life-altering conversion at age 16, his intense involvement in the church, and his growing sense of unease with the version of Christianity he was living. On page after page, Pagitt lays out his journey toward an authentic, passionate expression of a faith that feels alive, sustainable, and meaningful.
