Publisher's Description

Losing Your Faith, Finding Your Soul is for those of us who have come to the end of traditional beliefs and wonder if we have reached the end of faith as well. It is for the day when assumptions about God and the religious teachings we trusted in the past no longer apply to life. When your old beliefs die, is it possible to hold onto faith?
 
David Robert Anderson answers this question with a resounding yes. With Anderson as friend and guide, we discover that what once seemed an ending is actually a promising beginning—an invitation into a more authentic, and very different, spiritual experience.

A graduate of the University of Chicago and Yale Divinity School, he is a frequent blogger and the author of Breakfast Epiphanies.

Endorsements

David Anderson's profound and personal reflections upon life's perennial pattern of loss and discovery provide insight and encouragement to seekers and believers alike. Wisdom drawn from Anderson's experience and that of many others who have become his companions along the way, make this a rich resource to which the reader will want to return again and again." - FRANK T. GRISWOLD, former Presiding Bishop,the Episcopal Church

"In Losing Your Faith, Finding Your Soul, David Anderson leads the "spiritually hungry yet suspicious" pilgrim right into the heart of the transformational path. Forcefully, eloquently, and with real pastoral genius, David opens our understanding to a richer life with God beyond conventional faith—a life that, paradoxically, starts at the moment old beliefs fail. He shows that "finding your soul" means awakening to a life of faith that is large enough to embrace the dynamism of human growth in all its pain and ambiguity. This superb and encouraging book meets a huge need. I recommend it wholeheartedly." - CYNTHIA BOURGEAULT, PhD, Episcopal priest, teacher,conference leader; author of The Wisdom of Jesus

"There's a bracing toughness about this Pilgrim's Progress for our time. We live in a culture where the predominant belief is that everything in principle is fixable. (No wonder many of us live lives of puzzling disappointment.) David Anderson confronts us with the great unfixables of love, death, and time. All these themes are forcefully yet gently faced in this remarkable book." - ALAN JONES, Dean Emeritus of Grace Cathedral, San Francisco; honorary Canon of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres; author of Soul-Making

"In Losing Your Faith, Finding Your Soul, David Anderson says what every thoughtful Christian has realized-faith was meant to be built upon, not enshrined. This book is a tribute to doubters, those seeking honesty, and those in search of a faith forged in failure. There are no flowers here, and no rosy promises, but truth abundant and light for the journey." -PHILIP GULLEY, author of Living the Quaker Way
