A Reimagined Faith
What do you do when the faith you’ve always known no longer works and makes sense?
That’s the haunting, confusing, unexpected question confronting twentysomething Peter Daniel Young after a friend from his campus ministry doubts whether Christianity makes sense of life and has anything to offer it. More troublesome yet: the right Christian answers Peter was trained to offer since childhood are for questions no one is even asking—including his friend, and even himself.
Which leaves him questioning what he’s always believed and leads him into a crisis of faith the likes of which he has never before experienced.
While not abandoning his childhood Christianity, he launches into a journey of exploration and discovery, seeking a reimagined faith for his world—his generation, his friends, himself—even wondering what the essence of the Christian message is in the first place. Along the way, he is confronted by rising doubts, encouraged by new friends and old, questioned by those close to him, and challenged to own his faith for himself. What he discovers is all at once terrifying and thrilling—for this story is the drama of his faith’s death and rebith.
Written in the self-discovery style of Brian McLaren’s award-winning A New Kind of Christian and John Greene’s coming-of-age stories, with shades of such classics as C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity and John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, J. A. Bouma’s A Reimagined Faith is the first story in a fresh, insightful spiritual coming-of-age series for a new generation wondering if the Christianity they’ve always known offers more in these dynamic times. Drawing from his own spiritual journey as a young adult, Bouma writes a stiring fable of resonance and truth for those wrestling with deep questions of faith, life, and everything in between.
Whether you are facing your own crisis of faith and wondering whether Christianity still matters, or you know someone who is struggling themselves, discover along with Peter what the Christian message means for him, his family and friends, his life in the Church—and for you.
