Publisher's Summary

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
6: Always believe hope comes easily 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 listeners 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.
