Christian Piatt had a Bible (literally) thrown at him when he was kicked out of his youth group for asking too many questions about God, about Jesus, and about the Christian faith that he would end up running from for much of his life. He’s not alone: today, more people than ever before are defecting from religion, citing years of hypocrisy and abuse. Having painstakingly regained his faith–but on his own terms—Piatt is the best possible person to reconcile what Christianity claims to be, with what it’s intended to be.

In postChristian, Piatt demonstrates how we can take the “Christian vices” inherent in our religion–such as pride, unquestioning certainty, and judgment–and transform them into “Christian virtues”–humility, faith, and mercy–in both sermon and practice. He demonstrates that it’s not just the “sinner” who needs redemption, but Christianity itself–and redemption is only possible once we start admitting that we are both faithful and also flawed. With searing honesty and razor sharp wit, Piatt shows us that it’s not always what you believe that matters most to the world, but how you live your beliefs out.
