Religious Rebels
Christy Lynne Wood

Something is wrong. It’s become common for Christian celebrity leaders and organizations to be caught in corruption and public failure. Former believers are deconstructing their faith to the point of abandoning it. Many of us have experienced deep pain and resulting disillusionment because of things that happened at church or at the hands of other Christians. Are we missing something? What if there’s more?

What if the doubts, questions, and rebellious rumblings in our hearts are good? What if they are exposing a fake god and a broken religious system? What if our questions are pushing us to find a real God who is bigger and better than we’ve ever dreamed?

Christy spent her teens and early twenties in a cultic sub-group of Christianity characterized by legalism, twisted Scripture, and lies. But Jesus found her anyway. Getting to know the real Jesus changed everything. A people pleaser and good girl by nature, Christy began to feel a strange rebellion creeping into her heart. Religious Rebels shares Christy’s journey while exposing familiar lies she has noticed in mainstream Christianity. With stories, humor, and grace, she encourages her readers to embrace their own questions and doubts as they begin an awkward search for the real Jesus.

Larry Elie

Didymus (Greek for twin) of the Bible has been called “Doubting Thomas” because he needed to see in order to believe, just as many people do today. In this historical novel, Thomas was expected to work hard in the shadow of his favored, elder twin brother, who would eventually inherit the family vineyard in Galilee. Posturing and conflict between the identical twins characterized the boys’ home life from an early point. One evening Thomas tasted wine created from a wedding in Cana—a miracle that would change his life forever.

Telling his family about Jesus became his top priority, but Thomas didn’t have all the answers yet. His leaving the vineyard to follow Jesus made him appear disloyal to his family. Would his testimony of “impossible” miracles be deemed trustworthy? How could he convince his equally stubborn and doubting twin of the truth? How could his family ever find true peace? Effectively witnessing to those we care about is something we still deal with today.

Let’s Talk!
Todd Pheifer

Conversation around complex topics can be difficult, particularly for the church. Division is not a new problem for congregations across the world. Addressing certain taboo subjects in today’s world can cause people to experience both fear and avoidance.

For the church, it does not have to be that way. Despite the many challenges to conversation, unity through dialogue is always possible. Unity as a church is not only an exciting prospect for effective ministry, it is a biblical mandate.

Let’s Talk! is an upbeat call for people to gather, ask questions, actively listen, and talk through issues to reach greater understanding and a path forward. The book provides both analysis of conversational hurdles and practical guidelines for fostering productive discussion. Written in an accessible, conversational tone, Let’s Talk! is a helpful guide for individuals and a developmental resource for small groups who will be guided by the end-of-chapter discussion questions.
