Praise for Everything Good about God Is True

“For a generation that continually finds ourselves questioning and re-questioning the very idea of
religious ‘truth,’ Bruce Reyes-Chow has delivered a gift of a book right on time, promising us that we
can still find comfort in the Divine One we’ve long loved—not in spite of Mystery, but because of it.”
—Shannon K. Evans, author of Feminist Prayers for My Daughter and Rewilding Motherhood

“When it comes to faith and spirituality, some people feel like they’re on the outside trying to get in,
and others feel like they’re on the inside looking for a way out. Both groups will love Bruce Reyes-
Chow’s new book. He names the parts of religion that so many of us are trying to get away from, and he
introduces an understanding of faith in God that so many of us would like to be part of. Highly recommended!”
—Brian D. McLaren, author of Faith After Doubt

“Bruce Reyes-Chow articulates what so many of us are quietly thinking: that there are valuable goods in
this Christian story worth carrying forward. When our faith is hijacked, the solution is not to turn over
the keys; it’s to say and live what we know to be true. Everything Good about God Is True offers a much-
needed catechesis—one of liberation and love and justice—that gives voice to our longings for a God
beyond both our construction and our deconstruction. This is a must-read for all who sense that
something in this faith is worth salvaging.”
—Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Professor of Theology at Earlham School of Religion, and author of Invisible, Spirit Life, and Reimagining Spirit
