Kent's ability to crack open and work thru our very deep spiritual issues in a common and real way makes this such a gift. These are some of the heaviest and most contentious issues and questions that every serious believer has asked themselves... even if they can't ask them publicly. This may be the most important book written for Christians in the last 10 years. Why so important?... we claim we want a real and authentic "faith"... but the only way our "faith" can be authentic is if we take the journey of honest reflection and dive into the real questions in our hearts! Kents story gives each of us a map for our own journey into our own unknowns.
Thank you Kent for your humility. Thank you for the grace in which you dealt with the hard questions and hard issues. Thank you for the invitation to live an ordinary life and find and honest spirituality. Thank you that you never saw a need to throw rocks or disparage others. Thank you for sharing your story... it will change the world... it has already begun!

Kent's story is my story; so I'm grateful for his courageous honesty to write such a memoir. I was raised an agnostic with no church upbringing. Then I became a follow of God at age of seventeen. My faith was pure, my doubts were pure, and I loved the tension of exploring such a God of mystery. But that all changed when I left home to study for the ministry and began my indoctrination into "church world" or evangelical fundamentalism. After 25 years of pastoring and having my questions suppressed, seeing behavior justified and blessed in the name of God, and having elder boards crucify me because I didn't always toe the party line, I said like an investor on the show "Shark Tank"...I'M OUT.!" I too have left "church world inc." and have found the purity of God again. How refreshing it has been to really know God again without the tenacles of the church choking off my thirst to know our great God. Thank you Kent for being a voice in the wilderness!!!
