A Christianity Worth Believing offers an engaging, 'come-with-me-on-a-journey-of-exploring-the-possibilities' approach to what it means to be a follower of Jesus in our day. Written by Doug Pagitt'a leading voice in the Emergent conversation-this beautifully written book weaves together theological reflections, Christian history, and his own story of faith transformation.

Pagitt invites readers to follow him as he tells the story of his un-churched childhood, his life-altering conversion at age 16, his intense involvement in the church, and his growing sense of unease with the version of Christianity he was living. On page after page, Pagitt lays out his journey toward an authentic, passionate expression of a faith that feels alive, sustainable, and meaningful.

I thought this was a great book. It sparked some wonderful conversations about what it means to be a Christian. I love the title and the perspective Doug, one who did not grow up attending religious services, brings to the table on this topic. A great read for people who are seeking God and willing to think outside the box.
