I went into this book with an open mind How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask the uestions might stand in as the tag line for my own faith journey I too attended Bryan College drank coffee at Harmony House and had a minor crisis of faith in college I even took the Christian Worldview class under Professor Held Rachel Held Evans Dad I too grew up in a Christian home won the awards and knew all the answers Then I moved 12 hours away to attend a private Christian college and found myself personally confronted with the problem of pain and the hypocrisy within the Bible Belt My freshman year I struggled in the face of personal tragedy to believe that the God I loved could be good if He allowed evil in the world All my academic answers fled and my emotions wreaked havoc Yet the Millennial Christians around me used words like community and doing life together and emphasized that we were a chosen uniue generation They dismissed my confusion So yes I get the crisis of faith And I get coming back to the answers you originally dismissed and holding them lightly Yet Evans stops there She praises evolution of faith and tells us how she left fundamentalism to find her own fundamentals But what fundamentals Apparently some hidden truths discovered through community Presumably because we advance in our knowledge or goodness as time passes After all Christians no longer believe in a geocentric universeShe dismisses the reason and arguments of fundamentalist by ignoring many of the real arguments and focusing on the fringe groups And yes I agree Dayton Tennessee may have an inordinate number of fringe Christians but that does not mean the articulated beliefs and hopes of countless Christians can be so easily dismissed My greatest problem with this book is that Evans dismisses fundamentalism and replaces withnothing She pushes her emotions and personal stories and then hides behind them This book offers mockery but not reason And because she focuses on how she feels about things I finished this book and realized I felt less annoyed and disappointed I went in hoping to reason and talk together I walked away told to respect her feelings and hold my beliefs loosely because after allthe Bible endorses multiple wives Or something Also this review is excellent I recommend it

I read this book because of a post on Amanda Lawrence s Facebook page I am so glad that I did I highly recommend it for anyone who grew up in the ultra Baptist world and has found themselves progressive intellectual critical thinking or any synonym of these I grew up in Independent Fundamental Bible Believing Baptist Churches just the kind Ms Evans describes in this book We were never taught to uestion or criticize anything and just told that the Bible is the inherent Word of God and we should take it at face value However unhappy I am with the suashing of all things smart and female I did take one amazing thing from that experience which is my Faith and belief in God and Jesus When I became a mom I started struggling with how to reconcile my Faith which I strongly feel has allowed me the grace to survive many things and has provided me with a sense of optimism with my desire to raise a critically thinking strong progressive young woman For many years I was unable to connect the two After slowly edging my way back into church I was finding a peace and happiness in that fellowship but still struggling with the childhood experiences I had This book allowed me the freedom to connect my faith with the negative experiences of the churches I grew up in and find a way to talk to my daughter about faith and feminism in one breath

Bullet ReviewI am really glad the name changed from Evolving in Monkey Town to Faith Unraveled because the correlation between the actual subject matter of the book and the Scopes Trial is tenuous at best Reading the various attempts to intertwine the two were kinda painful such as the mostly frivolous Chapter 3 on the history of Dayton as really the only relation is that Evans became less fundamental or as she calls evolved her Christianity in the town where teaching evolution in science class was challengedI ve read Evans A Year of Biblical Womanhood and I really enjoyed that I thought it really challenged many Christians perception of biblical womanhood that there was ONE and ONLY ONE way to be a woman and the Bible spoke very clearly on that matter The uick and dirty answers are No and nope And don t bother commenting on this review how I m wrong because this is NOT the place for a debate You wanna debate write your own review Thank you GoodbyeThis Not so much Not only because of the aforementioned desperate attempt to tie in living in Dayton with her evolution of faith It s a memoir not a really in depth look into Christians accepting scientific principles which the old title Evolving in Monkey Town somewhat hints at This is just one woman having a crisis of faith a very thoughtful topic to be sure but completely different from the one expectedAlso I find it strange how the author has this crisis of faith but never chose to look outside the Christian box for answers or if she did research outside Christian circles she never mentioned it Did she investigate the historicity of Jesus by reading Bart Ehrman or Richard Carrier Did she pick up The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins or God Is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens What about other non theistic religions Did she research Hinduism Buddhism Shintoism and many other tribal religions as well and how they answered her myriad of uestions about heaven and hell and if homosexuality was a sinI do completely understand her journey because many Christians can be very resistant to the hard uestions Evil heaven and hell abortion being gay etc And I think her book could be the path to move away from hardcore fundamentalism which seeks to conuer and destroy and a encompassing form of Christianity I just wish that I had seen if it happened some form of Evans reaching to non Christian sources for answers to her uestionAlso I found the writing pretty choppy it was odd how every other chapter after the first section focused on a different person and Evans interpretation of that person and some facet she could morph into talking about her evolutionMy personal opinion is this If you want high academic this is not your book If you are looking for some insight into Christians adopting scientific principles this is also not your book If you are a Christian asking uestions or seeking comfort you may enjoy this book And if you are the type of person that loves the smooshy reads like Sarah Bessey s Jesus Feminist An Invitation to Revisit the Bible s View of Women or Chicken Soup for the Fill in the Blank soul this is pretty much up your alley
