For those who have struggled to believe. For those who have believed and now struggle.

These words are for you.A Necessary Heretic explores the complex issues of our time, as well as long-standing theological ideas, through the lenses of an Original Jesus who saw God as the Good, Compassionate, More-Mature-Than-You-Can-Imagine, Parent. This book is for anyone who wants to hold onto their Christian Faith while also being free to question some of the difficult things they have been taught and told. Things which seem to go against what they increasingly see, feel, and experience. With a gentle and compassionate approach, A Necessary Heretic explores new ways of seeing through the eyes of an Original Jesus who came to set people free.
