How to Help People Who Are Deconstructing Their Faith

Episode 260 with Preston Ulmer

George P Wood on September 9, 2021


Social media is filled with stories of well-known Christians who have deconstructed their faith or are in the process of doing so. Some deconvert from Christianity entirely. Others identify themselves as “exvangelicals” who now advocate a progressive form of Christianity.

In this episode of the Influence Podcast, I’m talking to Preston Ulmer about how Christians, whether ministers or laypersons, can help people who are in the process of deconstructing their faith. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.

Preston Ulmer is director of Discovery for the Church Multiplication Network in Springfield, Missouri, and an Assemblies of God minister. He is author of The Doubters’ Club: Good-Faith Conversations with Skeptics, Atheists, and the Spiritually Wounded, just published by NavPress.
