Houston Post: Ryan & Josh Shook Rediscover ‘Firsthand’ Faith


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.
