Pastor Jason Faircloth was a pastor who had it all – the ginormous church, perfect house, and all the answers, but his family was a mess – his life was out of control and he didn’t even know it.
When life fell apart on him, he was forced into a season of searching and Randall Arthur does a fabulous job of walking us through an honest deconstruction and reconstruction of one’s faith, call to ministry and the faithfulness of God through it all.
I LOVED this book. This book was first published in 1991. The author was apparently ostracized by his denomination when they found out about it. I can’t figure out why. It is a completely honest look at the ‘dark night of the soul’ that so many of us walk through – regardless of what started our journey.
When I picked up this book, I was reading two other books, but I put them both aside and read this one in one weekend. This book is terrific – not just for entertainment, but for its look at real life and real faith.
Thank you to Arthur for his honest writing. I strongly suggest you take the time to read this book.
