Women Beyond Faith
Meet Megan from New Zealand --
Oct 08, 2019 Season 2 Episode 21
Leah Janet

Megan, a Canadian now living in New Zealand with her husband and young daughter, is no stranger to change. Having a strong faith, Megan fought hard to understand her Christian identity in a close-knit, non-religious family. But after having her daughter and reading a mountain of books that were supposed to strengthen her faith, it unraveled. She is now living abroad, picking up the pieces of her identity, and discovering freedom from dogmatic religion, freedom to be her fullest and truest self.

Here's a note from Megan regarding her Deconversion booklist referenced in the podcast:

Here are some of the books that I read while going through deconversion. Through these works, you can trace the unraveling of my faith, my growing understanding of the real world, and the building of a new spiritual awareness. 

Why I Believed by Kenneth W Daniels

Jesus interrupted by Bart Ehrman

Finding God in the Waves by Mike McHargue

Sapiens Yuval Noah Hurari

Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan

God is not great by Christopher Hitchens

The Sacred Depths of Nature by Ursula Goodenough

When God is Gone, Everything is Holy by Chet Raymo

The Book on the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are by Alan Watts
