another email …

Several moving emails have come in recent days that I think are worth sharing because they give a window into the heart of Evangelical Christianity.

Hi Brian, Just wanted to let you know that I’m so excited to have started reading your books – they are proving to be a lifesaver to me. I have been a Christian for 14 years and have belonged to a small, loving, non denominational, fundamental, evangelical (what a mouthful!) Christian church. I am very active in various ministries in the church but have always had many, many questions, differences in traditional views that I have kept to myself, thinking “there must be something wrong with me, etc.”. I have reached a crisis point in the past 6 months and your books have been a lifeline to me. It is so amazing to find out there are many others who think/feel the way I do. I don’t want to say too much at church as I don’t want to cause division or upset or be disrespectful of what has worked for many people for most of their lives.

This is what I’m hearing more and more, not just from young people, but from 40 and 50 and 60 and 70-somethings too.
