Confessions Of A Heretic

Confessions of a Heretic by Brent McCay

 

I thought this book was interesting. It was written by a man who was a preacher in a fundamentalist church for 13 years. The first part gives an impressive look into his mindset as a fundamentalist and why he believed what he did. It then progresses through him realizing the harm the beliefs were causing him and his family and goes through a healing period. The second part of the book goes over a number of theology points he has issues with such as atonement, homosexuality, original sin, environmentalism (lack of in fundamentalist churches), etc.

 

I think after his transition from fundamentalist to where he is now sounds a lot like what I am hearing here. He has a profound respect for Jesus and his teachings but is bothered by the dogma of Christianity.
