Evolving in Monkey Town: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask the Questions | [Rachel Held Evans]

Evolving in Monkey Town: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask the Questions

Having grown up in a town famous for its commitment to conservative fundamentalism, Rachel Held Evans nearly loses her faith when rehearsed answers to tough questions aren't enough to satisfy her growing doubts about Christianity. Evolving in Monkey Town is a story of spiritual survival that challenges listeners to reassess their approach to Christianity in the context of a postmodern environment, where knowing all the answers isn't as important as truly asking the questions.

    "Moments of personal understanding"

    The author's voice is very easy to listen to and I felt like I was in a room with a friend. I found this book to have many 'aha' moments. I love it so much I got listed to her blog. I can't believe you would regret getting this book. I am planning on buying it for some of my friends so we can discuss it together.
