Wait, You’re Not Deconstructing?

"I felt, for a time, unmoored. Like many seminary students, I had been praying for years to a God who I had pictured as being just like me, only larger....What happened during those early years of my academic study of theology was a kind of deconstruction. More properly, it was a correction." - C.Today

This sounds like a conversation I had a few days ago.  I used the term "deconversion" since I was referring to someone who had left the faith.  I was told I should be using the term "deconstruction" since that was the term that many were using.  I explained that "deconstruction" could simple be reformation and that although some deconstruction stories did lead to deconversion others could lead to a more Biblical view of theology.
