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. And so she set out on a journey to understand the Church and to find her place in it.
Centered around seven sacraments, Evans' quest takes listeners 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.

Everything I love and hate about the church
What was one of the most memorable moments of Searching for Sunday?
After reflecting on everything wrong in today's American churches, Rachel Held Evans reminded me that rooting for the demise of "those" Christians isn't helping, either. It was a humbling reminder that we all have work to do.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The story about the young gay Christian in the chapter "Enough" had me in tears.
Any additional comments?
This book is funny, moving, and inspiring. Every Christian should read it.

Her best yet
I think this is RHE's best book so far. She's honest and humble. The humility was a pleasant surprise! I love how she uses the sacraments to make her own journey. Beautifully written and ruggedly honest account of her church journey so far. I sense she's just beginning to see that her church journey and her spiritual journey are two related, but different, things.
