…we’re tired of the culture wars, tired of Christianity getting entangled with party politics and power... We don’t want to choose between science and religion or between our intellectual integrity and our faith. Instead, we long for our churches to be safe places to doubt, to ask questions, and to tell the truth, even when it’s uncomfortable. We want to talk about the tough stuff—biblical interpretation, religious pluralism, sexuality, racial reconciliation, and social justice—but without predetermined conclusions or simplistic answers. We want to bring our whole selves through the church doors, without leaving our hearts and minds behind, without wearing a mask...when our gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender friends aren’t welcome at the table, then we don’t feel welcome either...not every young adult gets married or has children, so we need to stop building our churches around categories and start building them around people.

“…the journey of faith is rarely a straightforward one…. Scripture doesn’t speak of people who found God. Scripture speaks of people who walked with God. This is a keep-moving, one-foot-in-front-of-the-other, who-knows-what’s-next deal, and you never exactly arrive…. No step taken in faith is wasted, not by a God who makes all things new."

This might be Evan's best work yet! RHE uses her own experience in the church to challenge us to think about our faith. She organizes the books in sections about the sacraments which helps build themes and challenges readers to consider what some symbols of the Christian faith mean to believers today. I highly recommend this one!
