Not All Who Wander (Spiritually) Are Lost

A Story of Church

Traci Rhoades, Foreword by Jerusalem Greer

May/2020, 152 Pages, PAPER, 5.5 x 8.5

ISBN-13: 9781640652798

A delightfully-written exploration of faith for those who are searching and for those who are settled

What if we stopped trying to find the perfect church in the right Christian tradition and intentionally explored our faith with all our Christian brothers and sisters? Can Christians embrace God fully by exploring other faith traditions? In Not All Who Wander, we discover that we do indeed find Jesus in a church, and traces of him in our everyday lives as well.

Not All Who Wander walks readers through the author’s faith journey, and how her experience with churches in a number of traditions has left her longing for more of Jesus than any one church offers. It also presents stories from other believers to give readers a sense of how alike, and different, our spiritual experiences can be. Rhoades has developed a passion for discovering all the ways we worship Jesus and invites readers to join her. With utter delight, she’s discovered no matter which traditions she worships with, Jesus meets her there.

Audience: Young Christians, pastors, seminarians, lay leaders, general readers

TRACI RHOADES has attended nine churches: five different denominations in six different locales. Her experience has given her a unique perspective on church life and fueled a passion for exploring all the ways believers worship Jesus. She blogs regularly at
