Author Rachel Held Evans plans New Orleans lectures _lowres


Author Rachel Held Evans will deliver three talks in New Orleans the weekend of Nov. 7-8 as the guest of St. Charles Avenue Baptist Church and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Louisiana.

She will lecture at 11 a.m. and at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, and will preach at the 11 a.m. service on Sunday, Nov. 8, at St. Charles Avenue Baptist Church, 7100 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans. Tickets for the lectures Saturday are $15 if lunch is included, $5 without lunch, and are available at Eventbrite.

Evans’ blog charts more than 250,000 visits each month. She is the author of three books: “Faith Unraveled: How A Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask the Questions,” “A Year of Biblical Womanhood: How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head and Calling Her Husband Master” and “Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving and Finding the Church.”

She speaks out of her own experience of growing up in a very conservative church tradition, which led to a crisis of faith during her college years. She now communicates with an appreciation for her foundation of faith while addressing an honest look at what Scripture and the Gospel of Jesus really says to us today.
