Losing God by Matt Rogers

Losing God: Clinging to Faith Through Doubt and Depression

Recounting his own struggle with doubt and depression, Matt Rogers explores the question of how, in a world of suffering, we can call God good. This challenging question can manifest itself as a conspiracy of doubt and depression, so that our emotions and our intellect come under attack. Will God deliver us through this distressing journey?

  • Christians struggling with doubt or depression
  • Counselors
  • Pastors


"A needed book, beautifully written, from a promising new writer." - Brian McLaren, author/activist

"Matt Rogers has something to say, and he says it in a way no one has." - Tony Jones, author of The New Christians

"Matt Rogers shows us throughout this compelling narrative that we are complex beings physical and emotional as well as spiritual. As Rogers points out again and again, our theology should line up with this complexity and thus address the whole person." - Gerald L. Sittser, Whitworth University
