aEUROoeAs a thinking person of faith in a world where the church
and academy are viewed at odds with one another, David Gushee's
memoir reveals a vulnerability bound to a firm belief that the
lives of those who follow Jesus need to be spent saving souls
without losing minds, especially their own. Any scholar wondering
why they're still Christian will find solace in his testimony.aEURO
