Onk! Onk!

Ongk is the sound of a goose.
Ankh is on the pharaoh’s tomb.
Önk, önk is the horn of my red jellybean car.

Jared Herd’s book More Lost Than Found presents the authors attempt to delve into issues of his past when he “found” Jesus at a young age, but then vividly recalls “losing” him later on. This churchy language of finding Jesus may sound goofy and seem debatable, but theological questions of what it means to be truly “saved” are not exactly the basis of Herd’s book. More like he questions why so many young people, raised within the church, are leaving and how one can lose something that should be as all encompassing and joy filled as salvation. Why, he seems to ask, would such a gift be rejected?
Herd attempts to examine the message of the Gospel as found in Christian tradition and the Bible and how that message is being shared or lost in our communication with young people growing up in modernity. 
More Lost Than Found attempts to help young people in the midst of forming conclusions during a turbulent time in early life when questions, doubts, and analysis are a natural part of development. Herd is especially successful in offering aid to the young seeker, but not being pushy about a message, a glorious gift really, that does not need forced.
