A growing number of books have appeared recently recounting personal journeys of faith faith searched for, wrestled with, lost, found, abandoned, affirmed, re-imagined, understood in new ways or any combination of these. We will read contemporary works in this genre exploring, among others, themes of religion, gender and identity. Our readings will include Sarah Sentilles, Breaking Up with God, Joanna Brooks, The Book of Mormon Girl, Sheila Weinberg, Surprisingly Happy, Tariq Ramadan, What I Believe, Chris Stedman, Faithiest, Colleen Carroll Campbell, My Sisters the Saints, and Lauren Winner, Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis.
