Product Description

In Reasons to Believe, John Marks, a former 60 Minutes producer and born again Christian takes an intimate look at the life and practice of evangelical believers, one of the most influential forces in America today. Earning a Publisher's Weekly starred review, Marks' book crosses into the cultural world of evangelical Christianity speaking at length with missionaries, political activists, theologians, Christian musicians and filmmakers, and with pastors who have turned small congregations into megachurches. Through his generous and personal examination, Marks paints an unforgettable story of how a lapsed believer came to terms with his own faith. NOTE: To support its conclusions, the book contains some candid discussion of sexual issues and stories with sexual themes. While not gratuitous, they may contain offensive elements to some readers.

Publisher's Description

Born again at sixteen, John Marks later abandoned his faith. In Reasons to Believe he attempts to cross a deep cultural barrier to understand those who now condemn his way of life. He speaks at length with missionaries, political activists, theologians—the rich and powerful, the poor and broken, and the pastors who have turned small congregations into megachurches. The result is a remarkable, intimate portrait of evan-gelicals, one of the most influential forces in America today, and the unforgettable story of how a lapsed believer came to terms with his faith.

Author Bio

After writing for U.S. News & World Report for a decade, John Marks became a producer for Morley Safer at 60 Minutes. Marks is the author of three novels; Reasons to Believe is his first work of nonfiction. He is a Texas native and a graduate of Davidson College, and has an MA in creative writing from the University of Iowa. He lives in Massachusetts with his family.

Editorial Reviews

“Courageous investigative journalism...a memoir of startling self-reflection…Marks writes with unfailing intelligence, insight, and deep compassion.”
“Marks gives us a stunning glimpse of American evangelicalism in all its variety.”
“A penetrating view into what has been the dominant strain of Christian faith in America in recent decades.”
“Marks tracks his former born again faith with a ruthless critical eye.”
“Illuminates a world that most people think they know... will reshape your views of the future of faith.”
“For an intelligent, first-person tour through the large American evangelical landscape, readers could not do much better than John Marks’s REASONS TO BELIEVE.”
