Part memoir, part cultural exploration, "In Good Faith: Secular Parenting in a Religious World" covers the author's journey of growing up in an evangelical Christian home, leaving religion behind as a young adult, and going on to raise children in a family outside of religious belief. Maria Polonchek weaves her personal story together with up-to-date studies and philosophical exploration of what it means to raise secular children in an otherwise religious world. Offering careful and respectful advice for other parents who are raising their children outside of a specific religious belief system, she explores the many other ways of instilling identity, belonging, and meaning into our lives and the lives of children. --dustjacket
