about

A Former Evangelical’s Spiritual Journey
What happens when a devout religious conservative questions his own evangelical tradition using the Socratic principle and follows where the evidence leads? Michael Camp’s examination sends him on an illuminating spiritual adventure, a tenacious quest for a vibrant but reasoned faith in God. His deepening doubts propel him to uncover nine “heretical” revelations that turn evangelical theology on its head.

Through entertaining vignettes and lively conversations in a pub, readers learn how he ultimately adopts a new vision for a progressive—but not stereotypical—faith in Christ. Sure to rattle the Religious Right and befuddle the Secular Left, this brutally honest personal pilgrimage challenges and encourages readers to rethink all things sacred and embrace a faith full of grace and reason.

Praise for "Confessions"

“Camp’s book marks an important milestone. It adds another chapter to a growing body of literature about what it is like to awake from the evangelical dream and discover that you’ve been living a nightmare. I recommend this book!”
—Frank Schaeffer, author of Crazy for God

“...a provocative and insightful memoir by an evangelical Christian who dares to quit blindly accepting the ‘bible-based’ assumptions of fundamentalism...”
—Mel White, author of Stranger at the Gate and Holy Terror

“...has all the marks of a spiritual classic. Its honesty, courage, humor, and real ‘God’ experiences are the mandatory rungs in the ladder people need to climb out of today’s toxic cocktail of fundamentalism and cynicism, and walk boldly into the dazzling light of authentic spirituality. Bravo!”
—Jessica Maxwell, author of Roll Around Heaven

“An important book for both conservative and progressive Christians. Much of it reads like a novel while being highly instructive.”
—Marcus Borg, Jesus scholar and author of 21 books
