From the single, pure, infallible truth of Jesus Christ from which Christianity was born, the religion has since splintered into an overwhelmingly vast number of denominations, each laying claim to the firm truth of its doctrine. This situation can sow confusion for modern-day Christians as they wrestle with complex questions about spirituality and morality. In light of these challenging circumstances, first-time author Thomas Walker draws on his own spiritual wakening as well as a probing knowledge of Scripture to bring some clarity to the confusion and offer a fresh, daring perspective to old questions.
This literary work begins with Walker's personal account of the development of his faith, tracing his long and sometimes meandering spiritual journey. From there, the author engages with well-known Biblical parables and teachings, establishing his bold but well-defended position that today's Christians should reorient themselves away from the arcana of denominations and church leaders and toward a strong, personal, one-on-one relationship with God. He argues passionately for abandoning an over intellectualized or misleadingly scholastic approach to biblical matters, asserting that the only way to understand God is spiritually rather than intellectually. But by no means does that position suggest that Walker is careless with his research or analysis; indeed, he draws on a range of texts to support his argument, which a number of pastors have described as refreshingly eye-opening and insightful.
"Beginning on January 4, 2008, God instilled a passionate desire in my heart to write this book. Standing confidently on God's promise to give wisdom to any person who asks, I present this literary work. I pray this book will do justice in revealing the awesome love our heavenly Father has for people and how He longs for a personal relationship." —Thomas H. Walker
