secular humanism His fearless search for the truth led him out of the strict confines of his Southern Baptist upbringing, but his persistent experience of God wouldnt let him remain an atheist In

skeptics and the faithful The message of hope and beauty in this book is for all of us Amena Brown, spoken word poet and author of Breaking Old Rhythms Answering the Call of a Creative God This is the
