for the first time in a couple years of mental struggle … hopeful

I just finished reading “A New Kind of Christian,” and I wanted to thank you. It was water to a desperately thirsty soul… I guzzled it all down in just two days. You’ve given me a vision of a direction to go that I hadn’t known existed, so that I can still wholeheartedly claim the name “Christian.” I have a lot of thinking and learning and processing yet to do, but for the first time in at least a couple of years of mental struggle, I am happy and hopeful. Thank you.
