In this episode we talk to Rachel Held Evans about her journey from a conservative evangelical faith, through a period of wrestling with questions, doubt, cynicism and despair, to the emergence of a new kind of faith. And we discuss the trials and tribulations of embarking on this journey under the gaze of social media.

One comment on “Rachel Held Evans – Losing My [Evangelical] Religion (N97)

    Really enjoyed this interview. I’ve been familiar with Rachel and her journey for a number of years. Although English and converted there at 20, I’ve spent most of my adult life around American Pentecostals and Evangelicals. Early on, it was a life-ruining experience. In recent years, my relationship with Jesus has been completely re-born and I can relate to you guys and Rachel completely.

    Glad to have found Nomad. Look forward to listening to old and new podcasts.
