“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 United States, 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. Now, Reverend Thomas has written a book that will become the liberal Christian answer to The Purpose Driven Life. Thomas 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?” while weaving in a sensible Christian theology for modern living.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Just when you thought Jesus was coming back toting a gun, waving a flag, bashing his gay brothers and sisters, [and] angling for a seat in the New York Stock Exchange…Buzz Thomas has the audacity to remind us to look for the real thing—the Jesus who spoke of love.” Bill Moyers
“Thomas’ 108-page easy-read is a clear, intelligent presentation of many of the issues on the ragged edge of the cultural divide growing in America between religious conservatives and religious liberals.” Tulsa World
“[Thomas] takes on today’s big religious questions: homosexuality, the place of women, evolution vs. creationism, the plausibility of miracles, religious pluralism, life after death and others. Thomas’ writing is clear and engaging…For those who have not yet been exposed to the religious debates taking place in the public forum, this concise book serves as a good introduction.” Publishers Weekly
“A fascinating read, regardless of religious or political affiliation.” BookPage
