Twice before Lee Harmon has written about Christian topics, once on the gospel of John and once on the book of Revelation. But the question people keep asking him is this: As a liberal Christian, why do you care so much about the Bible? Others wonder whether he is truly a Christian at all.
Lee finds that both conservative and liberal Christians often have this type of attitude toward one another, and so he sets out not to propose a compromise, but to seek understanding. He writes as a liberal Christian, explaining what Jesus means to him and why he finds the Bible fascinating and even essential.
This is a book that expresses a vigorous spiritual view, but which does so for the purpose of inviting conversation and understanding. Perhaps those of us who are in different streams of Christian thought need to consider that others also have something to contribute, that their disagreements with us do not represent apostasy or heresy but rather their unique and valuable experience of God.
