What happens when you deconstruct your faith? Aside from all the theological messiness it brings, deconstruction brings with it a lot of personal trauma. Friends and family often distance themselves. Your church sometimes removes you from the pews. And often, you are left with nothing more than rubble where a seemingly unmovable building once stood.
Enter Michelle Collins' debut book, Into the Gray: The Mental and Emotional Aftermath of Spiritual Deconstruction. Far from a "how-to" guide, this book is much more "pastoral" in that it allows the reader to check in with a fellow spiritual sojourner so that, by the end of its pages, they can say "me too."
