Confessions of a Christian Cynic:
How I Found Meaning & Faith
By Rev. Curt McCormack
This autobiography of Rev. Curt’s spiritual journey offers a commentary on why much of the theology and current practices of the Christian faith are no longer viable for the 21st century Christian. His historical insights, reviews of the Aramaic and Greek texts, and metaphorical views are based on his life-long study of the Christian scriptures.
Today’s Christians have accepted advancements in many areas, including science, technology and medicine, but would not want to be treated medically by a doctor of antiquity or give up their computer and smartphone for the quill and parchment.
The only exception has been in religion. Many Christians still want to honor the ethics, dogmas and rituals of an antiquated idea of God. This sometimes creates a faith of exclusivity that forgets the basic teaching of Jesus to love one another.
Curt brings to this discussion the universal principle of Divine Love that is found in most all the religious traditions.
For Rev. Curt, the simple fundamental truth of the Christian faith for the 21st century is found in Micah 6:8, “What does the Lord require of you? To serve justice, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.”
“I strongly recommend McCormack’s passionate, clear autobiographical, illuminating, at times humorous, series of essays.”
