I’ve embarked on an 18-24-month project that will help with some future books.
It involves putting my personal journal on computer. I started writing on October 30, 1972 and continue to this day–over forty-six years of journaling.
I’ve already transcribed the hand-written pages from October 1972 to March of 1975. They’ve been enlightening. One subject I glimpsed with my own eyes in 1974 is in the news these days.
I saw it at age 21–in four nations. It was ugly. Still is.
My new book, River of God: Where Religion Began and Why Grace and Love Will Triumph, makes its national debut this week. I consider it my Magnum Opus (great or most important work).
I’d love for you to get a copy, write a review, and pass it on to other seekers of truth.
I’ve tried to write the clearest book on religion ever attempted.
I’ve always been fascinated with the word “holy,” which is used to describe the utter uniqueness or other-worldliness of God. Holiness means that God is “different,” “pure,” and completely “outside the box” of our finite human imagination.
This view of God reminds me of C.S. Lewis’ description of Aslan, the Jesus figure, in the Chronicles of Narnia where Mr. Beaver reminds Susan:
” Of course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the king, I tell you.”
To put it another way, God is very unusual and often does unusual things.
He even uses unusual messengers.
