Next, let’s talk for a moment about who is not audience of this book. If you are looking for a book that will get you through a “spiritually-dry” period, help you to find the words that connect you to a distant or absent God, or lead you through a time where you are feeling spiritually attacked, I can confidently say that this is not the book for you. As many believers or followers of Christ can attest, a Christian journey of faith is marked by periods of dryness, doubts, distance, and disillusion. Followers of Jesus testify to the fact that it’s in times such as these that their faith is not only strengthened, but the buds of faith blossom as well. The shelves are filled with books designed to address this. Again, in my opinion, Faith Shift is not written to hand spiritually thirsty believers a cup of cold water. Kathy Escobar is the only person that I have ever seen who is brave enough to address the fact that there are many of us, who like orphans left on a dark door step, are dying in an abandoned state.
Is Faith Shift for you? Has your spiritual faith undergone a shift, like two continental plates rubbing together and you are the City of Los Angeles sitting on top of them? Are you no longer certain about the things you once held as dogma even though you swore you were not one of those dogmatic people? Are you terrified to say out loud the things you spiritually feel? Are you all alone? As someone who knows exactly what Kathy is writing about, I can tell you a shift of faith is not about “thorny issues” or trying to find comfort in like-minded people. The faith shift that Kathy Escobar speaks of is a terrifying free fall from certainty and conviction into doubt and fear. If this resonates with you and you understand of what I speak, then Faith Shift is written for you. There is a language that you will understand and that will resonate with your soul (even if you doubt its existence).
To deny that there is an extraordinarily large audience of former true believers, once faithful church attenders, post-evangelists, ex-youth workers, and disillusioned pastors who long to know that they are not alone in their search for both answers and kinship is simply cruel. Kathy is brave enough to tell us that in spite of our doubts, in spite of how far we have fallen, and regardless of whether we want anything to do with Jesus ever again, God is remarkably big enough to handle it all.
“You are not crazy, you are not alone.”
While these are Kathy’s written words in Faith Shift, I have to believe that she longs for us to be brave enough to believe (even when belief seems impossible) that these are the soothing words of a now distant savior who still longs to know and love us. Rest in that.
