About-

There were a million reasons to leave. But she didn’t.


Faith deconstruction—asking questions and finding that religion doesn’t do a good job of answering them—has become a well-documented phenomenon within Christianity. Studies show that people are leaving the church. Accusations loom large in faith communities.


Andrea L. Lingle didn’t leave. She had a million reasons to leave: grief, deconstruction, cynicism, disillusionment . . . but, she can still find a church bulletin in her purse most days. Credulous is a walk through the different movements of a traditional Christian worship service bulletin to wonder aloud, why? Why is she still here? What does she have to say, as a woman, mother, lay-person? And Credulous asks, what might you have to say?

Endorsements & Reviews-

“If death turns us into theologians, then Andrea started in the delivery room cradling her stillborn child. With devastating grief, raging honesty, and fierce vulnerability, she invites us into her memoir of struggle. Believing that God enters life as it is rather than how it is supposed to be, Andrea reminds us of a gospel that forsakes the happy ending for something far more authentic and ultimately Christian: the holy mess of becoming fully human.”   

—Brian Combs, Founding Pastor, The Haywood Street Congregation



“Andrea Lingle is a wise woman who is a curious, inquisitive Christian, who speaks from a depth of experience as a mother, a lay leader, a survivor, and a ‘retro-church hipster.’ As she walks us through Christian life and experience through the lens of Sunday morning liturgy, she speaks with a voice many of us are straining to hear—that of a 30-something adult who loves Jesus, but who has a few questions.”

— Larry Duggins, Leader, Executive Director, Missional Wisdom Foundation
