How to Catch God in a Butterfly Net is a compilation of theological essays and absurdities detailing the spiritual shifts of a questioning Christian.
One of the most common questions I received upon the release of my first book, Where the Colors Blend, was this: What do you believe now? This book is an honest and, I admit, geeky and theologically-heavy attempt to answer that question. My eight-year, ongoing search for an authentic version of spirituality has been borderline obsessive, filled with constant learning, reading, re-reading, listening, and re-listening. That’s the only credibility I claim in writing this book: obsessive wrestling. I am unable to fully let go of the wonder of the Christian message. Something kept pulling me back.
I wrote this for evangelicals who are curious why young people especially are leaving churches and want to honestly listen to what they might have to say. I care deeply about evangelicals, and have been richly impacted by the evangelical movement time and time again. I believe these “leavers'' and “drifters” can positively affect the future landscape of the church. I also wrote this book for spiritual seekers who no longer feel at home in the churches of their youth, but are still mysteriously drawn to the Christian message. I hope these essays light a path forward for you theologically in a seemingly new—yet, in all actuality, an ancient and perennial—way.

BAD THEOLOGY REINFORCES IT."
