Announcing My New Book!
The Missing Story of Christianity
What's wrong with Christianity? How do so many of us believe the same things but act so differently? Why is it so hard to love one another? What if we got all the facts right, but the story wrong? This book asks: What if the Bible is actually the story of humanity growing up, and our current struggle is the transition from childhood to maturity?
I wrote this book to take back the Bible from those who use it justify discrimination, separation, persecution, and legalism. If you believe in serving "the least of these" and bringing the love of Christ into the world, but feel like you fighting against those who claim "Scripture is on their side," then get ready to fall in love with the Bible again. The story of the Bible is the story of God's children, and it's time we grow up!

I have seen many passionate and convicted Christians who find they just have no place their church.
Now we see only reflections in a mirror, mere riddles, but then we shall be seeing face to face. Now I can know only imperfectly; but then I shall know just as fully as I am myself known. - 1 Corinthians 13:12 (NJB)
