About the Book



"Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith. She was raised in a Christian home, where she had seen her mom and dad feed the hungry, clothe the homeless, and love the outcast. She had witnessed God at work and then had dedicated her own life to leading worship, as part of the popular Christian band ZOEgirl. All that was deeply challenged when she met a progressive pastor, who called himself a hopeful agnostic. Another Gospel? describes the intellectual journey Alisa took over several years as she wrestled with a series of questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith. After everything she had ever believed about God, Jesus, and the Bible had been picked apart, she found herself at the brink of despair . . . until God rescued her, helping her to rebuild her faith, one solid brick at a time. In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. If you or someone you love has encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity and aren't sure how to respond, Alisa's journey will show you how to determine-and rest in-what's unmistakably true"--



Book Synopsis



"This may be the most influential book you will read this year." --Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Miracles

A Movement Seeks to Redefine Christianity. Some Think that It Is a Much-Needed Progressive Reformation. Others Believe that It Is an Attack on Historic Christianity.

Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith. She was raised in a Christian home, where she had seen her mom and dad feed the hungry, clothe the homeless, and love the outcast. She had witnessed God at work and then had dedicated her own life to leading worship, as part of the popular Christian band ZOEgirl. All that was deeply challenged when she met a progressive pastor, who called himself a hopeful agnostic.

Another Gospel? describes the intellectual journey Alisa took over several years as she wrestled with a series of questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith. After everything she had ever believed about God, Jesus, and the Bible had been picked apart, she found herself at the brink of despair . . . until God rescued her, helping her to rebuild her faith, one solid brick at a time.

In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. If you or someone you love has encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity and aren't sure how to respond, Alisa's journey will show you how to determine--and rest in--what's unmistakably true.



Review Quotes




Podcaster Childers (Mama Bear) takes on the progressive Christianity establishment in this revealing work. She describes having an unquestioning belief in her Christian faith until a progressive pastor tested her by arguing persuasively against central Christian tenets. Childers ended up joining a small progressive discussion group, in which "every precious belief I held . . . was placed on an intellectual chopping block and hacked to pieces." This "deconstruction" pushed her to examine historic Christianity, the virgin birth of Jesus, his resurrection, the Bible, atonement, and hell by "reading every apologetics and theology book I could get my hands on" and auditing seminary classes. Finally, she concluded the resurrection of Jesus happened, and he was not "simply a good teacher or wise man to imitate. . . . our only option is to do it [God's] way or not at all." Childers also notes her fundamentalist beliefs run counter to the ideas of popular progressive voices such as Rob Bell, Sarah Bessey, Nadia Bolz-Weber, and Rachel Held Evans. This impassioned work is sure to prompt debate among progressive and evangelical Christians alike.--Publishers Weekly
