Are you disillusioned by some aspects of Christianity, like having to believe the right things to “get saved”? Like the idea that an all-loving God would sentence anyone to hell? Like understanding an often contradictory Bible? Then meet CLEAR FAITH. Clear away those stumbling blocks to uncover a faith of your own that makes sense. Meet the Jesus we can truly call “brother.” By seeing with new eyes, through a clear lens, we can experience and live with a simple, straightforward faith that is globally inclusive, open, and compatible with a progressive, scientific worldview.
CLEAR FAITH, the author’s term, is a way of seeing, a way of perceiving, that brings the Bible and Jesus into human focus. By viewing the contradictions and apparent errors of the Bible plus the supernatural elements of both the Bible and Jesus in a human context, the disillusioned seeker can appreciate new freedom and clarity in constructing a faith in God that makes sense.
Susan Stover writes as a seminary-educated, mainline-Christian lay person who has been tripping over stumbling blocks long enough to compel her to seek new perspectives in faith. The CLEAR FAITH perspective is like a brand new pair of glasses bringing the foggy into sharp focus.
