New York Times bestselling author Rachel Held Evans embarks on a quest to find out what it really means to be part of the Church.

Like millions of her millennial peers, Rachel Held Evans didn’t want to go to church anymore. The hypocrisy, the politics, the gargantuan building budgets, the scandals—church culture seemed so far removed from Jesus. Yet, despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing her back to Church. And so she set out on a journey to understand Church and to find her place in it.

Centered around seven sacraments, Evans’ quest takes readers through a liturgical year with stories about baptism, communion, confirmation, confession, marriage, vocation, and death that are funny, heartbreaking, and sharply honest.

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.

    After many insightful and honest discussions about organized religion, my hairdresser put down the foil and showed me this book. I found Rachel Evans’ writing style and content to be funny and spot on. I’m telling everyone about this author. God DOES work in mysterious ways!

    As a Christian my entire life and now in my early/mid 30’s I related to this book more than I can ever express. I’ve been angry with church for years for them trying to be ‘cool’ and ‘different’ when all we need as the body of Christ is the Word! We all won’t agree on everything all the time but this book was so beautiful and I applaud Rachel for being bold in her faith. Keep it up girl!
