Salty: The Deconstruction of a Good Christian
"Growing up, I wanted to desire God. But I never desired him like I desired popularity, pizza or People magazine. . . . It was infinitely easier to play the part of the good Christian than to actually live like one.
Hollylu Jostes was a good Christian. From the outside, she was everything Proverbs 31 required. But inside her foundation was fundamentally flawed. She wanted God but not at the cost of everything. She wanted to be "in the fold" and saved from damnation without it affecting her decisions on any given day. In the club but not a Gold Star member. This is the problem with lukewarm faith-it kills you before you feel it killing you.
Weary of claiming a faith that promised supernatural and transformational power, yet living with fear, anxiety, and doubt, Hollylu was at the ultimate fork in the road: reject her faith or stop thinking so deeply about it. The third option wasn't even on her radar: total commitment to God.
Salty: The Deconstruction of a Good Christian will take you on Hollylu's journey as she examines her faith in relation to her everyday life. Her refreshingly candid story-full of feisty exchanges with God-will inspire you to live as salt of the earth and as an agent of change, fully surrendered and transformed by Jesus
