The author uses his own experiences to explore the relationship people can have with God without being religious.

Tyndale
As an atheist, Dave Schmelzer never thought of himself as the religious type—and he still doesn't, even though he now believes in God and leads a large Boston church in the shadow of some of the nation's most impressive universities. Religion is usually about rules and codes, about “being good,” about what will get you embraced and what will get you shunned. But God, according to Dave, is all about how you can become a closer friend with him, with others, and with yourself.

In the tradition of C. S. Lewis's Mere Christianity and G. K. Chesterton'sOrthodoxy comes this illuminating collection of thoughts on faith in a postmodern world.Not the Religious Type bridges the gap between the two communities in which many of us live—the secular and the religious—and suggests a new, unexpected way of seeing the world and our place in it.

Whether we're the religious type or not, there's a certain part of each of us that invariably wonders if it's true—if there's a God we can connect with who is alive and active, with the kind of perspective on our lives and futures that we could never have on our own.

As Dave engagingly explores these most important questions, he invites his readers into “a new and warmer spring,” a way of thinking that will help both secularists who never imagined they would become people of faith and also people of faith who perhaps haven't experienced all from God that they've hoped.
