Tired of Apologizing for a Church I Don’t Belong To: Spirituality without Stereotypes, Religion without Ranting explores Christianity and religion in a world that is often spiritual but not religious, and examines the Nones – individuals who have no religious affiliation. Daniel divides the Nones into four groups: the no longer, the never have, the not yet, and the no way. The book talks about how both the Nones and Christians treat religion, faith, and doubt. Daniel is a Christian pastor, and her ideas are left-leaning in nature.
What makes the book most interesting are the stories and anecdotes that Daniel shares while illustrating her points; for example, the book opens up with an engaging story about Daniels’ encounter with a Sikh man at a Marshalls store. Two of the most intriguing sections of the book were a discussion of the rise of the Christian right and Post-Christendom Christianity and an analysis of what it really means for the Lord to be the Shepherd and for Christians to be his flock.
