What People are Saying About This
If someone shares their story of deconversion from Christianity or a revisionist approach to historic Christian teachings, they’ll be celebrated as authentic and find themselves trending on social media. But what about the people who look at the same evidence and decide to go deeper in their Christian faith? What I love about this truth-centered book is that Alisa shares her powerful journey of doubt on the way to a stronger faith. Readers will resonate with her honest wrestling with hard questions while at the same growing in their confidence because the answers Alisa shares are rooted in reality and Scripture. Contrary to what you may hear, you don’t need to revise or reject the gospel, the atonement of Jesus, or the Bible to find real joy, peace, and love. I hope every Christian reads Another Gospel? so they are not taken in by the false promises of progressive Christianity.
Is it possible to reconstruct faith after deconstruction? Using her own season of spiritual doubt as a backdrop, Alisa Childers explores the validity of Christianityas well as the inefficacy of progressive Christianitywith precision, insight, and intellectual integrity. Another Gospel? is a needed and welcome book that reveals the ways historic Christianity can stand up to our doubts, concerns, and questions.
I love this book! Alisa Childers takes you on a captivating journey from her unreflective conservative Christian faith to the cliff of another gospel and then back home to the true Jesus. Along the way, she deconstructs progressive Christianity with wit, insight, and easy-to-remember evidence. Another Gospel? will inoculate you from a temptation far more seductive than atheism. And it’s an enjoyable read too!
Alisa Childers has been where you may be now. She was that Christian hanging on the brink of deconversion until she found the truthclearly explained and thoroughly defended with the facts. In Another Gospel? you’ll find someone who has not only shared your doubts and faced your challenges, but also who found rock-solid answers to her own legitimate questions and concerns. In a witty, winsome, yet completely transparent and authentic way, Childers offers the wisdom and insight of a person who has gone through the battle and not only survived, but won. If you’ve ever wondered deep inside, Is Christianity really true?; if you’ve ever agonized, God, are you there?, then Another Gospel? will be your lifelineand God’s answer to your prayer.
Deconstructed faith stories are the new normal. We all know people who once seemed to be solid Christians but have walked away. Alisa’s story of her own reconstructed faith is a breath of fresh air. She shares her doubts and struggles and the journey God led her on to rediscover the solid Rock on which she stands. This excellent book is full of hope and sound reasons for faith in Jesus and God’s Word.
Another Gospel? is a timely, must-read book. Through the lens of her personal journey, Alisa Childers compares and contrasts the historic Christian gospel with the progressive “gospel.” Nothing is more important than accurately grasping the Good News of Christ and responding to challenges against it, which is why I am grateful for her courage and clarity.
Another Gospel? is one of the most important books of our time. It shows how progressive Christianity redefines the nature of God, the mission of Jesus, and the message of the gospelwhile undermining the authority of Scripture. In these pages Alisa Childers exposes this dangerous movement and points us back to a biblical faith.
