Поделиться:

Dodd tells his story in contradictory terms conversion and confusion, acceptance and rejection, spiritual highs and psychological lows

Dodd s moving story paints a nuanced and multilayered portrait of an earnest quest for God the hunger for genuine faith, the bleak encounters with doubt, and the consuming questions that challenge the intellect and the soul

He exchanges pot smoking for worship dancing, gives up MTV for Christian pop, and enrolls at a Christian university

On his journey he attempts to pinpoint and justify his belief in God, first with the fervent absolutes that characterize a new believer s faith but then with a growing awareness of the cultural complexities that define his faith and encompass his understanding of Christianity

Soon, however, he finds himself ill at ease with the other Christians around him and with the cloying superficiality of the Christian subculture

This is a story that will resonate with the emerging generation of young adults attempting to break new ground within their own faith tradition.

When a spiritual awakening in his last year of high school wrenches Dodd out of his rebellious party days, he embarks on a quest for God

With painstaking honesty, he tries to negotiate a relationship with his faith apart from the cultural trappings that often clothe it
