UT Alum to Sign Copies of New Book

Steve Christie will talk about his new book Not Really “Of” Us: Why Do Children of Christian Parents Abandon the Faith? on Tuesday, December 9, from 3-4:30 p.m. in the Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections on the fifth floor of Carlson Library. A book signing will follow his talk.

Christie is a registered nurse who holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Business Administration from UT.

In the book, Christie discusses why children raised as Christians often leave their faith when they are in their twenties. He explains how parents can help children who are questioning their faith, and how they might help children who have already left their religion re-connect to it.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information on the book, see www.notreallyofus.com
