Doug’s book is out, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a great book — a theological memoir, really. Doug’s story is so unlike mine, and his mind works so differently than mine, that I find my friendship with him fascinating. What I mean by that is, whereas I’m essentially a rule-follower and rule-maker, Doug is a rule-breaker. From the time he became a Christian at age 16, he’s found things wrong with the Christianity he was given. He takes it as his responsibility, not simply to conserve the Christian faith for coming generations, but to own Christianity, to participate in it and make it better.
This book is his story, so far. I’m sure that you will find it inspiring.
