Product Description

In Tables in the Wilderness, Preston Yancey, a conservative, Baptist, active-in-his-faith Christian, embarks on a journey that many have also taken: the movement from a secure faith into an overturned life. In the process Preston finds that God speaks in the wilderness, in cathedrals, in the Eucharist, in understandings that are bigger than narrow answers about God's will, and even in the silences in between.

Publisher's Description

Preston Yancey arrived at Baylor University in the autumn of 2008 with his life figured out, then slowly each piece of his secure world fell apart: his church, his life of study, his politics, his girlfriend, his best friend, and his God.

It was the loss of God in the midst of all the godly things that would change Preston forever. One day he heard God say, "It’s going to be about trust with you," and then God was silent—and God still hasn’t spoken. At least, not in the ways Preston used to think were the only ways God spoke. Journey with Preston as he navigates becoming a patchwork of Anglican spirituality and Baptist sensibility, of reckoning with a God who is bigger than the one Preston thought he was worshiping: the God of a common faith, who makes tables in the wilderness, who is found in cathedrals and in forests and in the Eucharist, who speaks in fire and in wind, who is so big, that everything must be God’s.

Editorial Reviews

… will appeal to young adult readers, especially those who are questioning their beliefs after being raised in Christian homes.
Well-written, engaging, and authentic...
Tables in the Wilderness:A Memoir of God Found, Lost, and Found Again is a record of Preston Yancey’s personal journey through a crisis in faith while he is an undergraduate student at Baylor University in Texas. He questions his Southern Baptist upbringing while at the same time trying to regain his intimate relationship with God; he can no longer hear God’s voice like he could when he was younger. Preston Yancey has written the memoir in a stream of consciousness style. This enables readers to experience firsthand the moments of worry, doubt, indecision, and frustration Preston goes through as he tries to figure out which denomination is the right one for him and why God is silent. Preston’s journey leads him to gaining a better understanding of Christian faith and into a richer and deeper relationship with God. This memoir will appeal to college students who believe in God, but sometimes feel abandoned by Him. They will find the memoir a guiding light as they seek to grow in their Christian faith. Because literature is an integral part of Preston’s journey, he includes a Suggested Reading List of influential books. The included Reading Guide is useful for individual and group study.
