Editorial Reviews


Coming Clean is not simply a book for alcoholics; it’s a book for anyone who has dealt with pain and been left scrabbling after God when their coping mechanisms fail or easy answers run out. This book is a mirror, held up for all of us to behold our addictions and the ways we’re all still recovering. Raw, sobering, miraculously ordinary, hopeful, beautiful, and yet terrifying. Seth is an honest writer, and there is no higher praise. (―Sarah Bessey, author of Out of Sorts and Jesus Feminist)

We’ve all got our vices, but without them, how would we cope? Along comes Seth Haines, with a luminous pen, an uncommon authenticity, and a palpable hope for anyone who’s tired of numbing the pain. Read at your own risk. This book might change your life. (―Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of Love Idol)

Haines tells an engaging story of faith and addiction, of hope and despair, of trust and fear, of joy and pain, of patience and pride. His honesty is refreshing, his faith is challenging, his hope is encouraging, his love is passionate, and his portrait of God’s grace is amazing. This book is worth reading slowly and thoughtfully, allowing the transformative power of God’s grace to change the reader as it is changing the author. (―Glenn R. Kreider, Professor of Theological Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary)

Seth Haines is a powerful storyteller, one who sticks to the narrative no matter how difficult the details without overcompensation, flowery disclaimers, or too much commentary. In Coming Clean, Haines offers readers a raw glimpse into his own brokenness, a struggle involving faith, substance, and life’s difficult path. Within these pages I not only became engrossed in the beauty and pain of Haines’ journey, but I also found bits and pieces of my own humanity throughout. Coming Clean is one of the best books about faith I’ve read this year, and I believe it will be one of yours too. (―Matthew Paul Turner, author of Churched and Our Great Big American God)

I honestly don’t know how to put into words how this book has opened my eyes, healed me, pushed me, and brought me peace. But it has done all those things, and I will never be the same. (―Annie F. Downs, author of Let’s All Be Brave)

Vivid, uneasy, convicting. Seth Haines has written the best book of the past year. Coming Clean is the work of a true storyteller, a direct, crisp narrative shot through with poetic asides and the turmoil common to us all. At once a celebration of and a eulogy for our humanity, Haines commands language and style so deftly the work reads like the highest literary fiction. Approachable and witty, Coming Clean is a sobering reflection, no matter your addiction. (―Preston Yancey, Canon Theologian, Anglican Diocese of the Western Gulf Coast)

Seth Haines’ Coming Clean is a profoundly courageous work that provides any reader a major dose of hope and guidance, whether or not he or she struggles with the more conventional addictions. His prose is heartfelt and moving, and though written in journal form, there is a depth to his reflections and revelations. They are significant thoughts, and the glimpses into his soul are truly meaningful. Readers will be encouraged and inspired in their own faith lives. (―Rev. Mihee Kim-Kort, Presbyterian Church (USA), author of Making Paper Cranes: Toward an Asian American Feminist Theology; Streams Run Uphill: Conversations with Clergy Women of Color; and Yoked: Stories of a Clergy Couple in Marriage, Family, and M)

Coming Clean is more than it seems. More than a journey toward sobriety, more than another memoir. With honest pain and discovery dappled with poetry, Seth Haines prophesies to us of what it means to find the peace of God and the forgiveness of Christ. Read these words; you will never be the same. (―Zach J. Hoag, author, preacher, and blogger)

Seth had me imagining what the world could look like if we all were widening our wounds, bleeding together, rejoicing in the astounding, transformative work of suffering, and coming clean as a global community. How beautiful. How kingdom. (―Erika Morrison, author of Bandersnatch: An Invitation to Explore Your Unconventional Soul)

If honesty were an ocean, Seth boldly goes to the depths. Coming Clean is a book we’ve been waiting for, mostly because the church rarely goes below honesty’s surface. Hopefully, this book will not only teach us to swim; it will teach us to start diving. (―A. J. Swoboda, PhD, pastor, author, professor)
