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.

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.
The content - she faces most relevant and toughest questions head on and with no fear
Just about every book by Frank Schaeffer, "Love Wins" by Rob Bell, and generally to Don Miller.
Metamorphosis of faith worth witnessing
Just get it - its eye-opening and liberating
She speaks my language, and she tells my story. before I knew it was my story. because when you're ashamed to ask questions, your brain and your spirit work together to keep you silent. thank you, thank you, thank you!
