Rethinking The Stuff We Already Know.

This website is my take on those nervous conversations we get into once we start talking about God, faith, doubt, science, and what the Bible says (or doesn’t say) about almost everything.

Originally, I paid a little extra attention to the evolution/creationism controversy as my first book Letters From The Slippery Slope focused on that subject. But there’s a lot to talk about and more than enough slippery slopes to keep us occupied. I am not an expert (notice the lack of letters after my name). I am a Jesus follower with a curious mind, a healthy reading list and a hunch that my trek just might help some people who land on the faith side of the fence, as well as those who don’t yet believe.

We Reflect The God We Believe In.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Find out what happens when a believer in Bible Science decides to take evolution for a test drive and ends up in a theological ditch?

Letters From The Slippery Slope is a slightly off-kilter story about losing faith in the sandbox of reason only to discover it again. Faith 2.0

This true story is intended for anyone who has struggled to mesh a scientific worldview with their faith. It will change the way you think about God and science and sweet ‘n sour pork and dinosaurs and sunday school and static electricity and Jesus and high school biology class and drive-thru pick up windows and atheists and sub sandwiches.

If science isn’t your area of expertise, relax. Letters From The Slippery Slope is about the journey from faith to doubt and back again.

It’s uphill both ways. Bring snacks.
