Sara Billups is a gifted writer, who has been honing her craft for decades, and Orphaned Believers, intertwined as it is with her own experience, has been years in the making. It is a delightful read simply for the poignant story of her struggles with faith, but undergirding her story is some keen social and theological reflection that examines how Evangelicalism has changed over the last half-century and why one might find a way to continue to follow Jesus in the church in spite of all its failings.
