Have you ever wondered if there was a different way to live out your faith? Do you feel surrounded by legalism and unwritten rules about what religion is supposed to look like? Are there certain “faith-laws” that you’re afraid to break?
Author Jacqueline A. Bussie attempts to answers those questions in her book, Outlaw Christian. Bussie is a professor of religion at Concordia College who has her own ideas about what Christianity should look like. She considers herself to be an outlaw Christian, and addresses what she titles “faith-laws” such as:
- Don’t doubt.
- Don’t be angry
- Never ask questions.
- Grieve in secret.
