“My experience with Outskirts Press was both enjoyable and impressive. As a first time author, I didn’t know what to expect and appreciated a knowledgeable staff that kept me informed about each step of the publishing process. The details of publishing can get overwhelming but I was thankful for the continued support and encouragement that Outskirts Press weaved into their service. I am happy with the finished product and have recommended OP to others who are looking for an affordable and professional way to self-publish. Thank you Bridget for all your hard work!”

To a person of faith, the Church is the body of Christ created to extend God’s love and grace here on earth. What can seekers and believers do when life inside the Church habitually drives them to seek sanctuary in the arms of the world instead? Countless people have experienced burnout and been subject to guilt trips and methods of manipulation in the name of ministry while their relationship with God suffers the consequences. What can you do when you become disenchanted with God’s people? How can the Church win back the countless souls who have walked away in a desperate act of self-preservation? Is there a way to restore hope to your faith? Believers, seekers, pastors, leaders, the burned-out and the passionate are all invited to join the discussion. If you have not suffered the soul-crushing blows to your faith that can happen within the Church then chances are you know someone who has. It is a life-altering experience with eternal consequences. Together we can learn to recognize the pitfalls that subtly creep into our congregations enabling us to intervene before it’s too late. Those who have already left the Church will see that all is not lost when their hope is in Jesus Christ. As the disenchanted endeavor to rebuild their faith, God will reveal a path to restoration and reconciliation.
