I’ve written five books. The first book is Divine Nobodies: Shedding Religion to Find God (and the unlikely people who help you). The big question for me in this book was: Why do I believe this stuff? The book tells the story of the people and circumstances that caused me to begin questioning many of my long-held Christian beliefs.
The follow-up book was Wide Open Spaces: Beyond Paint-by-Number Christianity. This book is that part of my story where I charted a new path of knowing God beyond the beliefs, mindsets and practices of organized religion. Each chapter shares a different way this evolved in my life.
After leaving most of my Christianity behind, I was left with the question of if and how Jesus mattered. I decided to take a season of my life and focus on this question. That period turned out to be much different than I expected, which included having two near-death experiences, losing both my parents, and having my book contract cancelled under the charge of being a heretic. On the question of Jesus, I got my answer. The title of that book is Being Jesus in Nashville: Finding the Courage to Live Your Life (Whoever and Wherever You Are).
My fourth book is Notes from (Over) the Edge: Unmasking the Truth to End Your Suffering. This book has one purpose – to help people escape the tentacles of religion so they can be free. Despite all our best efforts in knowing God and spiritual truth, why do so many of us continue to suffer? Notes in a very direct and non-nonsense guide to rooting out the religious mindsets that hold us back, and addressing the root cause of our suffering.
My most recent book is Inner Anarchy: Dethroning God and Jesus to Save Ourselves and the World. The book calls humankind to turn away from the false beliefs, mindsets, narratives and ideologies that rule us from within, and turn to what is real in our deep feelings and the truth we know in our gut. The book takes issue with the God-story and Jesus-story perpetuated through history by the Christian religion, and the need to bury that story so people can access the spiritual authority within themselves. The book envisions a new world unfolding as more people courageously lift up what is real inside them.
