In order for her faith to survive, Rachel realizes, it must adapt to change and evolve. Using as an illustration her own spiritual journey from certainty to doubt to faith, Evans challenges you to disentangle your faith from false fundamentals and to trust in a God who is big enough to handle your tough questions.

In a changing cultural environment where new ideas seem to threaten the safety and security of the faith, Faith Unraveled is a fearlessly honest story of survival.

Life often feels hard and messy and for me lately, faith has not been as solid an anchor to cling to. Rachel never fails to calm my chaotic spirit and bring me back to peace. This book is no exception and gave me comfort in my heartache and doubt. She always reminds me that its ok to have questions and sometimes the answers are less important than the seeking.
