Former journalist and 60 Minutes producer’s two-year journey of Christian faith across America. Marks interviews pastors, authors, scientists, musicians, and political pundits about the central issues to Christianity today – homosexuality, politics, gender relations, intelligent design, and the growing rift between old-school evangelicals and the “Emerging Church.” Along the way, he questions his own faith, abandoned years before, ultimately rejecting Christ as the answer. Language, discussions of sexual situations, violence, rape, drug-use, and homosexuality.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060832762, Hardcover)

Born again at sixteen, John Marks later abandoned his faith. In Reasons to Believe he attempts to cross a deep cultural barrier to understand those who now condemn his way of life. He speaks at length with missionaries, political activists, theologians—the rich and powerful, the poor and broken, and the pastors who have turned small congregations into megachurches. The result is a remarkable, intimate portrait of evan-gelicals, one of the most influential forces in America today, and the unforgettable story of how a lapsed believer came to terms with his faith.

A chronicle of the evangelical life, written by a born-again Christian and former "60 Minutes" producer, seeks to bridge the gaps between believers and non-believers.An intimate portrait of evangelicals, one of the most influential forces in America today, and the story of how this lapsed believer came to terms with his faith. Born again at age sixteen, journalist Marks later abandoned his faith. In this book he attempts to cross a deep cultural barrier to understand those who now condemn his secular way of life. He grapples with the message that millions of evangelicals attempt to deliver to their fellow citizens every day and speaks at length with missionaries, political activists, theologians, Christian musicians, and filmmakers--the rich and powerful, the poor and broken, and the pastors who have turned small congregations into megachurches. This is familiar and often comforting territory for Marks, and he still has a profound understanding of what it means to be an evangelical. Here he presents this world from the inside out.--From publisher description.… (more)
