Not All Who Wander (Spiritually) Are Lost: A Story of Church

Traci Rhoades. Church, $14.99 trade paper (152p) ISBN 978-1-64065-279-8
Bible teacher Rhoades debuts with a consuming chronicle of her churchgoing life, spanning four different denominations and nine churches. Beginning with fond memories of attending Southern Baptist and Methodist churches during her childhood, Rhoades explains how those experiences have shaped her perspective and given her a greater passion for Jesus. Sharing stories and examples from Christian contributors, Rhoades examines different church traditions and various forms of worship and shines a light on issues that can result in divisions within a congregation. Rhoades also explores the dynamics of Baptist, Methodist, and Church of God congregations as she moves from place to place amid changing jobs and life circumstances, reminding readers that no church is perfect, and that one should attend “expecting to find a community and always, always, more of Jesus.” She emphasizes that by listening and approaching others with an open heart, one can find new opportunities for experiencing Christ. Christians looking for community will relish this memoir of embracing differences. (May)
