On 8/26 Jeff Saunders wrote:   In her latest book Searching for Sunday, Rachel Held Evans heralds from atop her box her concern (and the many Millenials she’s advocating) for the Christian church.

As I got older and saw many of the actualities behind the people and cliches within the church perspective began to change.

On 7/2 Jon Gibson wrote: I’ve never met Rachel Held Evans in person. I’ve never even had a digital conversation with her. My guess is that if we ever met face to face that we would hate each other, love each other, or love to hate each other. She’s spunky, witty, snarky, and smart. She shares with a verbal eloquence and ... Searching For Sunday - A Book Review

On 6/29 Chelsey wrote: I was scared to read a Rachel Held Evans book because I follow her on Twitter. I don't really read her blog, she's really smart and likes to debate doctrine and I had to look up complementarian and egalitarian in the dictionary because of her, and I am just not really into being controversial so I kind ...

While I don’t agree with some of her viewpoints, and while there are definitely some generalities that were applied throughout the book that I do not personally find appropriate, I did however greatly appreciate ... n honestly told story but I'm saddened by a few generalities
