I have been reading “More Lost than Found: Finding a Way Back to Faith” by Jared Herd. My first impression of this book was that it was a bit disjointed, and struggled to come to a point. At the same time the style of the book was more of a reflection on some struggles and some thoughts that Herd went through.
As someone that grew up in the church I can identify with several of the ideas that he presents in the book. I have seen several of my friends become disillusioned with the church to the point of leaving.
The book seems to try to take the person of God and remove the big institution aspect that often the church has developed into, and Jared Herd wants to refocus the (quite possibly discouraged and disillusioned) reader on the person of Christ, and how Jesus focused on the heart of the person rather than the project that the local church was doing.
This has been a challenging book and good for a read when you struggle with your faith and how it seems to not match the way the church sometimes behaves.
I have been provided a complimentary copy of this book by Booksneeze, and I am free to evaluate the book as I see it.
