Weekend Rumpus Roundup


If you’re pondering the Christ in Christmas this year, you’ll want to check out the pieces we posted this weekend.

First, Donna Johnson interviews Erika Rae. Both are former Evangelicals who write about wrestling like Jacob with faith and guilt and “trying to be ’hot for God.’”

Then, a chapter from Rae’s memoir Devangelical: Why I Left To Save My Soul, about hoping for the end of the world.
