In “The Pretend Christian,” author Deirdre Reilly takes the reader on her personal journey to find authentic Christian faith, winding through common questions, doubts, and both negative and positive experiences that all lead to the stunning, life-changing reality of Christ's presence. Filled with raw honesty, sincere doubts, genuine searching, and moving, often-humorous insights, “The Pretend Christian” is a candid and bracing modern-day search for the one true God.
