One Man’s Journey from Unquestioning ‘Choirboy” to Freethinking Spiritual Thinker
James O. Rodgers was born into a family in which the practice of “ol’ time religion” was a cultural staple. And he still fellowships regularly with a Christian community. But, as a thinking person and The Diversity Coach™ for major brands such as Coca-Cola and United Way, he began to question the rigid teachings of the Baptist Church.
He came to believe that the Bible had some – but not all – of the answers he sought. So he also read other religious manuscripts, including the Torah, the Koran, the Bhagavad Gita and the Tao Te Ching.
What he discovered was that the different religious teachings shared many common principles. It’s how people practice – or label – those teachings that separate.
If we strip away religious labels, he wondered, couldn’t we come together over a common bond: love and compassion?
Epiphany: Finding Truth Without Losing Faith, explores the answer to this question. It challenges readers to celebrate and applaud their differences – as God does – and to seek their personal truth wherever it may come.
