Booklist Review!

I’m excited about this one:

Polonchek’s expertise doesn’t come from an academic degree or background in divinity or counseling—it stems from her ability to write about her personal spiritual journey. She deftly shares her experience as a parent and reflects on contemporary religious, nonreligious, and moral issues. As a parent, Polonchek has found ways to approach the hope and challenge of teaching morality without religion, awe without it being God inspired, and death without an afterlife. She also focuses on the importance of extended family and community for all, outside of a Christian community. For readers who may find that last part to be a hurdle, there are a number of helpful tips surrounding ways to find common ground and celebrate holiday traditions. There are many books on spirituality for Christian parents but few for secular families—this will fill an important gap. This is not a how-to parenting book. Although the book is written in the style of a memoir, those raising children will find the author’s ideas helpful. In Good Faith is a good addition to public library parenting and religion collections.
