An Amazon bestseller in the “Christian Grief and Counseling” category

Depression, financial distress, political division, and job loss,Caplin doesn’t shy away from the big challenges of life that can leave us feeling lost or exhausted. This book is a welcome invitation to look at life with bracing honesty, while still finding the God who is present and compassionate.” –Ed Cyzewski, author of Flee, Be Silent, Pray: Ancient Prayers for Anxious Christians

“I read this book in one afternoon, nodding my way through the first half, and weeping my way through the second. This is not an easy topic to cover, yet Caplin does it with such grace. She tackles impossible questions and shares deeply personal stories of her own with an impressive dose of wisdom, and also wit.” –Allison J. Kennedy, author of the Rain Trilogy

“Sarahbeth has a way of bringing a new perspective to light in regards to our view on suffering. She moves against the current of stale, rehearsed Christian responses and challenges the reader to look beyond the typically accepted responses to some of life’s most painful experiences.” –Amazon review

“I can’t overstate how important this book is, especially for those of us from a heritage of Protestant Christianity who really don’t know anything different…If you’re looking for a challenging read about faith identity, I highly recommend Confessions.” –Lydia Thomas 

“Sarahbeth is keenly observant and her honesty is unwavering, whether she’s talking about her first god being her hair, her first kiss, or the suicide death of a friend.”Amazon review

“[Confessions] is a powerful story of a young woman’s controversial spiritual journey, documenting her struggle for acceptance by her family, friends, and society as a whole. It is a much needed reminder not to judge others, because you never know the whole story.”Christine Hillebrand

“I would recommend this book to anyone who is questioning his or her faith. Ms. Caplin is open and honest, and her only agenda is to tell her own story and to try to inspire others to open themselves up to seeking God – even if that might mean some personal challenges.”Amazon review 

“[Caplin] begins with a preview of being found out by her family while in a hotel room, before rewinding to her earliest memory of Christianity. The anticipation of returning to that hotel scene kept me turning the pages.”Mark Edward

TYCU with blurb

An Amazon bestseller in the Essays category

“Sarahbeth has a unique voice, but her story is one that will resonate with many people. She’s been through a lot – fundamentalist college ministry, rape, losing her father to cancer – and she’s held onto her faith that refuses to pick a shelf in the religion section of Barnes and Noble. Sarahbeth’s insistence on telling her own heroically ordinary story rather than snapping into predictable, manufactured tropes makes her memoir a rich and beautiful journey. Each chapter had me asking questions that I would love to raise in the context of a church small group.” –Morgan Guyton, author of How Jesus Saves the World from Us

“In Things You Can’t Un-see, Sarahbeth Caplin confronts topics that are far too often glossed over or swept under the rug. Sharing her experience with issues like sexual assault, the #MeToo campaign, and the state of our country during our current presidency, she speaks with honesty to subjects that others try to erase. If you can relate to any of the above topics, you will find yourself within the pages of Sarahbeth’s essays.” -Amber Cantorna, author of Refocusing My Family

“I am all kinds of emotional after reading this book. The author speaks openly about her upbringing, heartbreak, struggles, and personal victories. It seriously moved me in a way I can’t describe. I HIGHLY recommend it.” –Allison J. Kennedy, author of the Rain Trilogy
