Book Signings

Book signings are scheduled at Sam's Club, Barnes and Noble, and Davis Kidd in January/February-all locations in Memphis, TN.

As word about the book spreads, I wonder if readers will begin to 'act' on any of the challenges suggested: Is anyone inviting a person of another race, religion, or culture over for dinner? Is anyone making any attempt at loving a neighbor any more intentionally than before?

Thoughts on Rethinking Reason

Rethinking Reason is gradually finding its way into the hands of readers. By the time of its initial public release, the book had sold out at every on line Book Seller. Since I'm a new author, I'm guessing that the distributor carried a small quantity of the books and as 'word spread', my few friends bought up the available copies! Only a guess on my part.

Interestingly, the book has not yet been as controversial as I would have expected-probably because the current readers are mostly friends. The only 'hint' of criticism came from a friend who disagrees with the premise of the book all together. He sincerely believes that his doctrine is 'correct' and the discussion should stop there. He believes his 'job' is to save those who don't share his beliefs. I believe he would say something along these lines: "Peoples' eternal destiny is at stake and the Bible is very clear about what is required to be saved. Although loving others is important, saving their souls is infinitely MORE important. So that should be where we all focus."

My own view is that I have spent the better part of my life defending my faith and a much smaller part of my life truly loving my neighbor. If God were judging, (and I believe He will) I think my love will be much more important to Him than my efforts at saving souls. But then that's just me.
