Faith and Other Flat Tires: Searching for God on the Rough Road of Doubt
About the Book
At 13, Andrea Dilley started asking 'mean questions' about God. At 21, she stripped the Christian fish off her car bumper in a symbolic act of departure from her religious childhood. At 23, she left the church, running into the arms of men who failed to love her and to friends who pushed the boundaries of all she once held sacred.
In this deeply personal memoir, Andrea navigates the universal doubts that plague nearly every believer and every skeptic alike: Doesn't religion diminish God? Why is God so silent, distant, and uninvolved? Yet amid her skepticism, she begins to ask new questions: Could doubting be a form of faith? Might our doubts be a longing for God that leads to a faith we can ultimately live with?
A story of crisis and redemption told with humor and refreshing candor, FAITH AND OTHER FLAT TIRES speaks to anyone driven to the margins of belief by skepticism and doubt.
