Publisher's Summary

In Out of Sorts, Sarah Bessey, award-winning blogger and author of Jesus Feminist, helps us grapple with core Christian issues using a mixture of beautiful storytelling and biblical teaching. As she candidly shares her wrestlings with core issues - such as who Jesus is, what place the church has in our lives, how to disagree yet remain within a community, and how to love the Bible for what it is rather than what we want it to be - she teaches us how to walk courageously through our own tough questions. In the process of gently helping us sort things out, Bessey teaches us how to be as comfortable with uncertainty as we are with solid answers. And as we learn to hold questions in one hand and answers in the other, we discover new depths of faith that will remain secure even through the storms of life.

    Story
    "Sounded like a robot reading this!"
    Would you try another book from Sarah Bessey and/or Joell A. Jacob?

    I am beyond disappointed in this experiencing. I could barely get past the foreword because of the automated sound of the reader. She sounds like those cartoons with the female robot voice. Or it's like being read to by Siri. I was SOOO looking forward to this book, but I will have to buy the book and read it myself, because listening to this was unbearable. I hate writing such a negative review, but seriously y'all, this was BEYOND bad.


    What other book might you compare Out of Sorts to and why?

    I don't know.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joell A. Jacob?

    Anyone. Literally, anyone would have to have been better.


    Did Out of Sorts inspire you to do anything?

    Write this review and wish I could get my money back...

    "Warm and wonderful"

    Loved listening to this book. Comforting at the end of a long day. Like mini sermons, straight from the heart of a down to earth, happy clappy Christian. This book gave me permission and helped me make peace with my faith.

    Story
    "Beautiful, Encouraging Book"

    I absolutely loved this book from the very first sentence: "Once upon a time you had it all beautifully sorted out. Then you didn't."

    I just finished reading Out of Sorts and I already want to read it again and soak it in deep. Sarah's words are so encouraging and her love for Jesus is contagious. I see myself in so much of her story, though we are from different denominational backgrounds. Sarah reminds us that it is okay to have questions and doubts and experience a bit of wilderness time. And she is so gracious in her writing about how we all need each other, all the various streams of Christianity. I love her vulnerability and honesty and the prayer at the end of the book nearly had me in tears. Do yourself a favor and read this book. You will be blessed!
