He went looking for faith but couldn’t find it in the church…
It’s raw, rough, real, and maybe even redemptive; and he could lose his day job for writing about it! I Just Wanna Ride is an Ivy League pastor’s search for authentic faith on a motorcycle after he couldn’t find it after years in academics, pulpits, or pews. From his immersion into biker culture since watching Easy Rider as a teenager, the author holds no punches in this provocative, edgy, and risky look at hogs and those who ride ‘em as a metaphor and challenge to believers and bikers. Too authentic for “church ladies” and too concerned about “faith” for secularists, this book demands reading by all of ‘em if any of ‘em still care about Who and what matter most sooner or later and definitely in the end.
