Publisher Description

Dubbed "a heroic gate-crasher" by New York Times bestselling author Glennon Doyle, Brian D. McLaren explores reasons to leave or stay within the church and if so how...

"Brian's new book on remaining Christian knocks it out of the ballpark in terms of framing and naming the questions. I cannot stop reading it. Thank you, Brian!"
—Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation, author of The Universal Christ

"Any thoughtful Christian has been asking the questions McLaren tackles here, but many of us are afraid to voice them aloud. In Do I Stay Christian? we’re gifted a gentle guide who opens ideas and voices the questions we cannot, naming our frustration, fear, and hesitant hope."
—Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, former Senior Minister, The Riverside Church; Founder, Invested Faith


Do I Stay Christian? addresses in public the powerful question that surprising numbers of people—including pastors, priests, and other religious leaders—are asking in private. Picking up where Faith After Doubt leaves off, Do I Stay Christian? is not McLaren's attempt to persuade Christians to dig in their heels or run for the exit. Instead, he combines his own experience with that of thousands of people who have confided in him over the years to help readers make a responsible, honest, ethical decision about their religious identity.

There is a way to say both yes and no to the question of staying Christian, McLaren says, by shifting the focus from whether we stay Christian to how we stay human. If Do I Stay Christian? is the question you're asking—or if it's a question that someone you love is asking—this is the book you've been waiting for.

It is time to ask… and see

A religion that has been obsessed with reducing people, institutions, organizations, races, genders, women, and children to a dualistic structure of Yes/No, Good/Bad, Right/Wrong is now the subject of a book asking a question in their dualistic style, “Do I stay Christian?”.

Matthew captured this idea from listening to Jesus, “That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging” Mt 7:2 MSG.

Dogma tends to be unaware of its own hypocrisies.

This is for those of us who no lounger fit in their systematic equation… you are not alone.

This is for those of you who are confused about people who slowly disappear from your Sunday mornings… perhaps you will see the dilemma.
