Steve Christie will talk about his new book titled Not Really “Of” Us: Why Do Children of Christian Parents Abandon the Faith? Tuesday, Dec. 9, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in the Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections on the fifth floor of Carlson Library.
Christie is a registered nurse who holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 1994 and a master of business administration degree in management in 2001 from UT.
In the book, Christie discusses why children raised as Christians often leave their faith when they are in their 20s. He explains how parents can help children who are questioning their faith, and how they might help children who already have left their religion re-connect to it.
