Rachel Held Evans and Matthew Paul Turner’s “What Is God Like?”

I received my copy of Rachel Held Evans and Matthew Paul Turner’s beautifully written and illustrated children’s book, “What is God Like?” It’s vision of divinity is loving and inclusive. It’s imaginative and open. It offers anyone caring for children a way to teach a healthy theology, as displayed on the page I shared below. (“But whenever you aren’t sure what God is like, think about what makes you feel safe, what makes you feel brave, and what makes you feel loved.”) I love it. It’s a perfect reflection of Rachel’s legacy and her love for people—especially people who felt disenfranchised by institutionalized religion.


It’s available June 15th wherever you buy books.


Pete Enns remembers Rachel Held Evans

It’s been almost a year since we lost author and theologian Rachel Held Evans at far too young an age. Pete Enns has written a reflection on the meaning of her life that her friends, fans, and readers will appreciate and that I recommend: ‘Rachel Held Evans and Her God’.

Enns is right: our generation lost our Anne Lamott, our Barbara Brown Taylor, way too early.
