Firsthand: Ditching Secondhand Religion for a Faith of Your Own (WaterBrook Press, March 19, 2013) by debut authors Ryan and Josh Shook has swept through the national bestseller lists during its first week on sale with the book ranking #4 on the New York Times Hardcover How-to, Advice, Misc list (Apr. 7), #5 on the Publishers Weekly Hardcover Non-fiction list (Apr. 1), #8 on the Wall Street Journal Hardcover Non-fiction list (Mar. 29), and #107 on USA Today’s Top 150 (Mar. 28).
Brothers Ryan (24) and Josh (23) Shook, the oldest sons of mega-church pastor Kerry Shook of the Woodlands Church near Houston, joined forces to tell their experiences of leaving home and doubting their faith. The two discovered that each of them needed to develop a personal relationship with Christ instead of relying on the one passed down from their parents. The book addresses an antidote to the rampant exodus of young adults from the church. Ryan and Josh speak directly to their peers on the faith-related issues of emptiness, doubt, authenticity and more.
Ryan and Josh Shook are profiled in the Houston Chronicle regarding their debut book Firsthand: Ditching Secondhand Religion for a Faith of Your Own (March 19, 2013) and their personal struggles as pastor’s kids to find a personal faith instead of copying that of their parents.
“You don’t have to be a pastor’s kid to find the faith that you had – or faked – for years doesn’t feel real anymore, they say. Ask most 20-somethings raised in a Christian home: They’ve gone through struggles and left the church, or like the Shooks, been forced to find a deeper understanding of Christianity,” writes the Houston Post.
Ryan and Josh Shook, along with their father Kerry, pastor of the Woodlands Church, will appear together at Lakewood Church in Houston on Wednesday, March 20 at 7:30 PM.

Hilary Alan, author of Sent: How One Ordinary Family Traded the American Dream for God’s Greater Purpose, writes that people often comment that her family’s move to Southeast Asia was such a “radical” example of obedience to God’s calling.
She writes, “Obedience is NOT radical. Its a response. A response that comes from love.”
