"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 U.S., 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. Rev. Thomas' book could become the liberal Christian answer to The Purpose Driven Life. He 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?", and weaves a Christian theology for today that people can embrace as a guide to sensible, modern living.--From publisher description.A guide for liberal centrist Christians addresses key issues challenging the faith today, providing non-political guidance on a variety of sensitive topics, from the purpose of life and the significance of the Bible to homosexuality and alternate faiths.

What would a liberal minister like to say to his conservative congregation if he weren't worried about being fired? That's the basic premise of this book that assumes all congregants are unthinking dullards.

I checked out the book because the author is a columnist for USA Today, and I thought he might have some informative insights to Christianity in the 21st century. He didn't.
