Many Christians are feeling out of step with the establishment church these days. Convinced that they are the problem, these Misfit Christians try to adapt to the hidden rules and regulations that nobody talks about, and eventually, they just get frustrated.

Some leave the church. Others hang on, "by their fingernails," as one told the author, but remain unsatisfied. Carolyn Henderson, a longtime Misfit Christian who writes the column, Commonsense Christianity for BeliefNet, reaches out to these independent thinkers and encourages them to stop putting themselves down.

Perhaps the problem, she suggests, isn't the Misfits.

The Misfit Christian is a series of bloggy essays drawn from Henderson's various online posts. Written for believers who do, and do not, attend church, the book encourages all believers to strengthen their individual walk with Christ, stop believing everything they are told, and look to Christ, not leadership voices, for guidance.
