Rachel Held Eans – I Don’t Always Tell You

I don’t always tell you.

Christians, especially those in the evangelical tradition, do not use to talk a lot about their doubts and about their dilemmas. They are expected to display a serene and confident outlook on life – they may have bought too much into the artificial American cultural optimism.

Rachel Held Evans, however, is not the shy nor the hypocritical kind of Christian. So, she invited us to discuss in the open our struggles, with God, and with each other.

This may be too much, though, for many.
