Valerie Tarico, a psychologist and writer, and Rachel Held Evans, a popular Christian blogger and author, have much in common. Both are women who grew up in evangelicalism and dared to ask questions about God, the Bible, and their religious tradition. Both graduated from evangelical colleges. Both have written books about where their questions have taken them. But the conclusions they reached were altogether different. (Tarico’s story of leaving her Christian faith can be read here and here. Three of Evans’s books are reviewed on our website here, here, and Searching for Sunday here.)
I’ve been reading the writings of both women for years so was fascinated to find their names linked together on an AlterNet post, as Tarico interviews Evans. I think you’ll find it as interesting as I did.
Read Valerie Tarico’s post on AlterNet, today’s Link of the Day: “Can This Woman Make Evangelical Christianity Sane Again?”
