Publisher's Description

Many young adults are disillusioned with the faith they've inherited. They see the churches of their youth as superficial and irrelevant to their deepest concerns. Meanwhile, culture pushes and pulls them in many directions, none of its pathways leading to true life.

In Jaded Faith, Jarod Osborne confronts head-on the disorientation and disappointment you may be experiencing in your own journey of faith. He helps you navigate—spiritually and intellectually—the most common side-trails that cause young adults to wander from the Christian faith.

For those who still want to believe despite their disillusionment, Osborne illuminates the pathway through jaded to a stronger, intellectually honest walk with Christ.

Author Bio

Author Info

Jarod Osborne is pastor of Vancouver Wesleyan Church. He and his wife, Esther, moved to Washington from Princeton, New Jersey, where Jarod completed his Master of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary.

Publisher's Description

Young adults are drifting, wandering, and turning away from the church because they feel let down by the faith passed down from previous generations. The church often seems superficial and irrelevant to their deepest concerns. Meanwhile, they are assaulted by a culture that pushes and pulls them in many directions, none of which resemble the narrow path that leads to life.

In Jaded Faith, Jarod Osborne confronts these issues head on. He engages the young adult reader spiritually and intellectually, helping the reader navigate the six most common side trails that distract people from the narrow way: irrelevance, hypocrisy, suffering, evolution, rationalism, and relativism. He also addresses the "secret" seventh reason for leaving the faith: sin. Each chapter addresses one of the side trails and guides the reader through an encounter with the gospel and back to the narrow way of Jesus.

Jaded Faith has an engaging, interactive format with space for personal reflection and decision-making. In an informal, personal style that engages young adults, the author will help readers navigate the intellectual and spiritual crisis issues they are facing and encounter the gospel and the path of holiness.
