"I'm not religious; I'm spiritual." How many times have you heard this, or even said it yourself?

Reclaiming Faith is a tender yet practical approach to uniting the spirituality you love with the religion you've lost. After surviving marital abuse and religious discrimination, Clifford reconciled his sexual and spiritual identities and now vulnerably invites you to learn from his journey. Modelled after his own process of healing, Clifford teaches you how to:

- Read the Bible as though you live among its pages

- Worship as though "church" was a personal sanctuary, not a public one

- Look inside yourself as though God actually dwells there (because God does )


Trent Clifford (MDiv) is a poet, speaker, spiritual director, abuse survivor, proclaimer of truth, and reclaimer of faith. As a writer and spiritual director, he seeks to provide a ministry of rest for people in the midst of processing their trauma, a ministry of inspiration for those who are looking to enter back into the faith that hurt them, and a ministry of imagination for anyone who needs to look upon God through new eyes.


"With vulnerability, clarity, and courage, Trent reclaims his life and his faith. Reclamation stands out as one of the few brave voices speaking honestly about domestic abuse from the perspective of a gay male survivor, while also giving voice to a gay man's surprising love story with Christianity. Though written as a memoir, this delightful book also reads like a love letter to anyone who has been hurt or cast aside by church and longs to find belonging again."

-Rev. Kyndall Rae Rothaus, Author of Thy Queendom Come and Founder of Nevertheless She Preached

"It seems an incredible feat for a first book to have such a well-defined and authentic voice. He draws us into a depth of intimacy that quickly made me start protecting my reading time from interruptions."

-Rev. Erin Conaway, Pastor of Seventh and James Baptist Church

"Clifford details the journey of loving God and the Church alongside the searing pain of feeling distanced from the faith held dear. He weaves together this significant loss with the expectation of a brighter future - one where his whole self is engulfed by the healing embrace of a warmer, bolder, broader faith."

-Rev. Geneece Goertzen, Author of Taking It Seriously: A Faith Leader's Guide to Domestic Violence and Founder of Hope.Rise.Thrive
