"Hayward expresses both the fear and loss, as well as the wonder and liberation, of life after religion." -Cait West, author of Rift
Embark on a transformative journey through this compelling narrative about giving up a belief in God and finding a new, wilder, and more authentic life.
Sarah Henn Hayward spent over thirty years as a devoted believer, passionately immersed in her born-again faith. But her search for truth also led her to science, psychology, and social justice. She asked really hard questions and uncovered the hypocrisy around concepts like hell, evolution, and Christian exclusivity.
When Hayward realized that she could not continue to believe in God, she ventured out on a journey to find herself again, to let go of fear about the future, to train attention on love and wonder in the present, and to find a life that is very much thriving without belief.
Giving Up God is a satisfying read for all the seekers, the curious, and the bold who aren't afraid to question the status quo. It's for wonderers, wanderers, and those brave enough to live into their own truth.
