Misfit Faith by Jason Stellman

  Jason Stellman has always felt like a misfit. A Protestant pastor with a sharp wit, a restlessly inquisitive mind, and a love of pop culture and rock and roll, he has long sensed that something was missing when it came to his relationship with God. In time, he felt drawn to the Catholic Church, so he stepped down from his ministry and embraced Catholicism, only to still feel misplaced and homeless. 

His feelings, thoughts, and troubles echo the disillusionment and confusion of many people who struggle relating to ancient faiths in a postmodern world. 

This book is primarily the story of ex pastor Jason Stellman, and it's a little rough around the edges. He deals with the issues of faith, like feeling like you aren't “christian” enough, or not being sure which faith is for you. The story is full of pop culture references and wit, which keep it engaging. He has the theological background to be able to question and explain things in a way that the normal lay person can't. If Christians today practiced Christianity they way Stellman explains Christianity, the world would be a much better place. Stellman has written a book that I would say is a must read for anyone who has ever struggled with their faith.

I recived this book in exchange for my honest review from Blogging For Books. All opinions are 100% my own.
