Freebie Friday: Rachel Held Evans book
Today Rachel Held Evans is kind to give away to one of my readers who wins the draw a free copy of her book Evolving in Monkey Town. Here's a short description of her book:
Eighty years after the Scopes Monkey Trial made a spectacle of Christian fundamentalism and brought national attention to her hometown, Rachel Held Evans faced a trial of her own when she began to have doubts about her faith. Growing up in a culture obsessed with apologetics, Evans asks questions she never thought she would ask. She learns that in order for her faith to survive in a postmodern context, it must adapt to change and evolve. Using as an illustration her own spiritual journey from certainty, through doubt, to faith, Evans adds a unique perspective to the ongoing dialogue about postmodernism and the church that has so captivated the Christian community in recent years. In a changing cultural environment where new ideas threaten the safety and security of the faith, Evolving in Monkey Town is a fearlessly honest story of survival.I like very much what Rachel is doing on her blog. Right now she is observing a week of silence. But she has opened up a series of conversations with a variety of guests, including a Calvinist, a Roman Catholic, an atheist, and more. I appreciate her attempts at building bridges between different ideologies, theologies and lifestyles. Thanks Rachel for what you do. Have a great retreat! Here's all you have to do to enter the draw:
I close the contest tonight at midnight Atlantic Time. Have fun!
