2013: The Year of the Post-Evangelical Memoir

2013: The Year of the Post-Evangelical Memoir

Reblogged from morganguyton.us

The post-evangelical memoir has exploded as a genre in the wake of Rachel Held Evans’ 2010 Evolving in Monkey Town: How A Girl Who Knew All The Answers Learned to Ask The Questions. Since that time, an industry of thirty-something post-evangelical memoirists has blossomed. And it seems like 2013 was the year that they all got published (or at least read by me). I read four post-evangelical memoirs this year that were each very different: Erika Rae’s Devangelical, Chris Haw’s From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart,  Tony Kriz’s Neighbors and Wise Men, and Addie Zierman’s When We Were On Fire. – See more at: http://morganguyton.us/2013/12/31/2013-the-year-of-the-post-evangelical-memoir-erika-rae-chris-haw-tony-kriz-addie-zierman/#sthash.G6MgDc59.dpuf
