Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307886298, Hardcover)Join us on a journey to find a faith of your own.
A faith that isn’t your parents’ or your youth pastor’s or your church’s.
Start from scratch, question everything, and get hold of a faith that’s real.
We call it firsthand faith.

An exploration in which "the brothers tell about growing up in church only to realize that 'how things are supposed to be' had stopped working for them. So they set out to find what makes a young person's Christian faith stick--or not--and in the process, asked hundreds of other people, young and old, some really hard questions, like 'If God is real, then why do I feel empty?'"--Dust jacket flap.
