Shelves: religion, kindle
This book has brought me much insight and comfort. Friends who have tried to convert me have found me a paradox; they can't understand why I say I believe in God and yet refuse to join them at church. In a strange way, I've just always felt uncomfortable with the overt worshipping and sharing with others (I'm quite private that way), so I felt that I won't fit in. Reading this has made me feel less weird, less of an outcast, just knowing that there are people out there who don't feel like they b ...more

- I received a copy of this book from GoodReads' First Reads program in exchange for an honest review-

I found this book to be quite refreshing. I know, I often say that of books that offer ways of thinking that aren't wrapped up in the same dogma many of us are tired of, but I really do mean it. To have an author open one's mind to possibilities, instead of using faith to limit them, is always something I find to be like a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale place of faith.

Wow this book blew my mind. As I read it I felt is was written just for me. Ricky states at the beginning that the book is meant for those seeking a better relationship with Jesus.

This book and a lot of it's points are helping me come to terms with my beliefs. Sometimes I feel there is no place for people like me that need help believing that God loves me no matter what. I've been hurt by the church before and it has been a stake through my spiritual heart. Maybe this can help be the start to my healing.
I received this book through the GoodReads first reads program.

Ricky Maye's book is a concise examination of Christianity and the problems that he has with the current incarnation of the faith. He explains how Christian's should strive to be more... well, Christian. What emerges is an understanding of the faith that incorporates the understanding, empathy, and altogether open-mindedness of the faith that existed when the religion first came into existence. I've no problem whatsoever with this me

I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway. I am not a very religious/spiritual person, but I thought this might be an interesting read. I might end up giving this to a friend of mine who enjoys religion a great deal more than me.
