|Inspired||Searching for Sunday||A Year of Biblical Womanhood||Faith Unraveled|
|Rachel's complete collection:||Drawing on the best in recent scholarship and using her well-honed literary expertise, Rachel examines Bible stories and possible interpretations, retelling them through memoir, poetry, short stories, soliloquies, and even a short screenplay.||A memoir about making do and taking risks, about the messiness of community and the power of grace, Searching for Sunday is about overcoming cynicism to find hope and, somewhere in between, Church.||Rachel decided to follow the Bible’s instructions for women literally. With just the right mixture of humor, insight, and incredulity, this book asks: What does God truly expect of women, and is there really a method for biblical womanhood?||Using her own spiritual journey from certainty to doubt to faith as an illustration, Rachel challenges you to disentangle your faith from false fundamentals and to trust in a God who is big enough to handle your tough questions.|

And the result? I am truly wishing I had this book fifty years ago. When I was 17 and struggling with the ideas and words coming from my fundamentalist church. When the answers led to many more questions that could not be answered. So I left. And waited until I was in my 50's to come back to the church that could help me find at least some answers, help me explore and find myself and more questions and answers.
This book gave me some answers, more questions, and hope for my walk with God.
I cannot wait to read more of her books. The world lost a wonderful woman when Rachel died.

The author grew up in Dayton, Tennessee, which in 1925 was home to the infamous (and somewhat contrived...) Scopes Monkey Trial - an argument between fundamentalists and modernists over the appropriateness of teaching evolution in schools. Growing up and being educated there in the late 20th century, she writes about her faith journey through what some of her detractors would have termed 'backsliding' and doubt, into a newer/older/fresher way of being a Christian. She comments, 'Doubt is a difficult animal to master because it requires that we learn the difference between doubting God and doubting what we believe about God. The former has the potential to destroy faith; the latter has the power to enrich and refine it. The former is a vice; the latter a virtue.' This is good stuff, but it is far from being a dry academic thesis. The description of the East Tennessee practice of Judgment Day is disturbingly funny, and throughout there is an honesty and openness which is refreshing.
Faith Unraveled is subtitled 'How a girl who knew all the answers learned to ask questions.' It's a great subtitle, and a vital skill for the contemporary church. We can't simply defend our territory and tradition for all we are worth - we need to evolve. Read and enjoy!
On a personal note, I would happily mention Faith Unraveled in the same breath as Rob Bell's Velvet Elvis and Brain McLaren's A New Kind of Christian - two of my favourite books of recent years.
