Searching For Sunday by Rachel Held Evans

I’ve been there, done that…There were times in my life I was searching for a church and it’s never easy. Being brought up one way, I was expected to have that “faith,” but it didn’t feel like home.

Searching For Sunday by Rachel Held Evans is an example of how many millennials feel…longing for a church that feels like a home, not one that is reminiscent of their parents. As a millennial I understand why this book was written, where an older generation might not. We are searching for a faith that is unique to us, not one of our past.

This book is broken down into seven sections, based upon the seven sacraments and covering the course of a liturgical year. Although it’s meant to be once cohesive book, it feels more like smaller essays compiled into one collection.

I really don’t have strong feelings one way other the other about this book. There were parts that I liked and others that I didn’t. The tone of this book is more serious than her last one, and for me, there were times that I was completely bored while reading.

If you are longing for a more authentic faith and church then you will find your heart on the pages of this book and a friend that knows where you are and understands how you feel. It’s definitely worth the read.
