Product Description

Outlaw Christian is about telling the truth--to God, to your Christian friend, and to yourself--especially when the truth hurts. If you don't have all the answers about faith (but can't stop asking the questions), Outlaw Christian is for you. If you watch the news and wonder what God could possibly be up to these days, Outlaw Christian is for you. If you have ever loved and lost, Outlaw Christian is for you. And if you have ever considered what the meaning of all this is, Outlaw Christian urges you not to stop asking. For a new generation of intellectually curious, socially aware believers, Outlaw Christian is a book about how honest faith sets us free to love.

Publisher's Description

Winner of the 2017 Illumination Award

Jacqueline Bussie knows that too many Christians live according to unspoken "laws" that govern the Christian life: #1: Never get angry at God; #2: Never doubt; #3: Never question; #4: Never tell your real story; #5: Always speak in clichés about evil and suffering; and #6: Always believe hope comes easy for those who truly love God.

Living according to these rules is killing real Christian life; Outlaw Christian proposes a rebellious, life-giving, authentic alternative. Through captivating stories and with disarming honesty, Bussie gives concrete, practical strategies to help readers cultivate hope, seek joy, practice accompaniment, compost their pain, and rediscover the spiritual practice of lament. Tackling difficult questions without political divisiveness, Bussie speaks to both progressive and conservative Christians in ways that unite rather than divide. And in doing so, she provides a new way to handle the most difficult and troubling questions of life in a broken world that God will never abandon.
