Do I Stay Christian? : A Guide for the Doubters, the Disappointed, and the Disillusioned
by Brian D. McLaren




Overview -

Dubbed a heroic gate-crasher by New York Times bestselling author Glennon Doyle, Brian McLaren explores reasons to leave or stay within the church and if so how...

Brian's new book on remaining Christian knocks it out of the ballpark in terms of framing and naming the questions. I cannot stop reading it. Thank you, Brian

--Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation, author of The Universal Christ

Any thoughtful Christian has been asking the questions McLaren tackles here, but many of us are afraid to voice them aloud. In Do I Stay Christian? we're gifted a gentle guide who opens ideas and voices the questions we cannot, naming our frustration, fear, and hesitant hope.
--Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, former Senior Minister, The Riverside Church; Founder, Invested Faith

Do I Stay Christian? addresses in public the powerful question that surprising numbers of people--including pastors, priests, and other religious leaders--are asking in private. Picking up where Faith After Doubt leaves off, Do I Stay Christian? is not McLaren's attempt to persuade Christians to dig in their heels or run for the exit. Instead, he combines his own experience with that of thousands of people who have confided in him over the years to help readers make a responsible, honest, ethical decision about their religious identity.

There is a way to say both yes and no to the question of staying Christian, McLaren says, by shifting the focus from whether we stay Christian to how we stay human. If Do I Stay Christian? is the question you're asking--or if it's a question that someone you love is asking--this is the book you've been waiting for.
