In Some Sort of Weirdly Wonderful First Rage Against the Minivan AND Alternet BOTH Run (Wildly Different) Excerpts From My New Book


Kristen Howerton founder of Rage Against the Minivan

“Why Jesus Would Have Hated Most Modern Day Religion” on Alternet

Two diametrically different leading websites Alternet (Lefty social/political) and Rage Against the Minivan (family/parenting/social justice) have just run excerpts of my book over the weekend. his has to be some sort of a first.

Rage Against the Minivan is one of the premier parenting sites run by author, speaker Ted Talker (Wild Goose Festival participant this year!) Kristen Howerton.

Alternet is the premier American Lefty/Progressive website.

On Alternet you’ll usually find Rachel Maddow or Noam Chomsky writing. Yet, Alternet excerpted a long passage from my book about Jesus. Rage Against the Minivan ran a passage about my experiences as a grandfather.

I’m thrilled and grateful! The timing is perfect given the book just went on sale on Kindle for only $4.99 thus accessible to everyone (as well as in paperback).

Join me at the Wild Goose Festival where Kristen Howerton and I will both be speaking along with many other people.
