"How did it all begin?" "What happens when we die?" These are just two of the questions Reverend Oliver "Buzz" Thomas hears centrist Christians asking as he travels across the United States, and he knows that their voices are not being heard. They're people of faith, not of politics, and they want more from their religion than a voter's guide. Now, Reverend Thomas has written a book that will become the liberal Christian answer to The Purpose Driven Life. Thomas writes sensitively about the reason we were put on this earth, the significance of the Bible, and how one pleases God. He answers difficult, contemporary questions like "What about homosexuality?" and "What about other faiths?" while weaving in a sensible Christian theology for modern living.
"Thomas's writing is clear and engaging....[He] argues against many conservative interpretations of biblical texts and sides with those who understand them as written by humans in a particular time and context far removed from the 21st century." (Publishers Weekly)

If your faith troubles you, please read
I am a Christian and one who is well read on the topic of Christianity and Religion. This is an excellent book that puts things into perspective and goes a long way to explain much of what the Bible really says. I have read much longer and in depth books on this topic, but I loved how this book made its point in so few words. I recommend this book to any who would like to actually think about their Christian faith as opposed to simply believing what they have been told.
An Absolute Must Read
