We’re delighted to announce the signing of Julia Duin. Julia is an associate professor of journalism at Union University and an award-winning reporter for the Washington Times.
A rising number of faithful people are leaving the organized church environment–many of them choosing instead to sit home on Sunday morning rather than take part in the available communities. In her book, Quitting Church, Julia draws on extensive experience as a reporter to faithfully research and ask important questions about the factors contributing to this phenomenon. Duin’s careful analysis will provide valuable insight for church leaders and churchgoers alike as she asks provocative questions about the changing nature of spiritual community in our culture.
Quitting Church–originally published in 2008, and updated with new material for this forthcoming edition–has been praised as a timely, important piece of sound journalism that will encourage any believer who has ever despaired about the church, been tempted to quit, or felt guilty over leaving.
