"Countdown…"

Over at B-Mac‘s place, he’s doing a countdown to the release of his new book, A New Kind of Christianity.

Here’s today’s gem:

“People would visit the church for a few weeks or months, listen intently, and then come to see me with their questions … I would give them my best answers, but often, after they left, I felt hollow. If they “bought” my answers, I was strangely disappointed. If they pushed back and told me my answers still made no sense to them, I though, “Good for you, because some of them don’t really make that much sense to me either.” (6)”

Perhaps…and I’m just sayin’, he could have used the Bible, rather than his “best answers”.

And to think that this guy sells books.
