I wrote this book primarily for those of us who believe, so we can better understand those of us who struggle with belief. A gap in understanding often separates believers and those thought of as nonbelievers or doubters. When the gap is wide, it is more difficult to minister, show compassion, or mourn with those who mourn. As a result, those of us who don’t believe as we once did suffer, experiencing loneliness and a sense of not belonging. But, understanding why some of us have lost our faith creates a bridge and allows us to reach and minister to all our brothers and sisters.
