It's the end of Christianity as we know it. But it's not a catastrophe-it's an opportunity.

Thousands are walking away from the church. Christians are grappling with their faith. And both believers and nonbelievers wondering-what's coming next?

Fearless and provocative, spiritual trailblazer Christian Piatt offers a roadmap to the future of faith with an unflinching examination of the church today.

What's left? Pairing the best "virtues" and worst "scandals" of Christianity, Piatt invites us to abandon institutional religion for deeper, truer faith.

Can we fix it? Guided by the biggest historical, religious, and pop-cultural pioneers of the post Christian era, he demonstrates how to save the best of what Christianity has to offer-and how to rediscover and reinvent the rest.

Do we care? There's plenty of good left in Christianity-if we dare to be as scandalously graceful and loving as Jesus Himself.

Bold and insightful, Postchristian dares Christians to break out of the box and invites outsiders into the fold as we revolutionize faith for a postmodern world.
