Having grown up in a Baptist church in rural Kentucky, Killinger eventually modified a number of his earlier beliefs. The 10 topics he covers here are the Bible, nature of salvation, the role of Jesus, the church, worship, morality, feminism, the religion-science debate, suffering, and the meaning of freedom. 224 pages, hardcover. Crossroad.
In this eloquent memoir, one of the grand figures of conservative Protestantism reveals what he learned from his upbringing and how, with trust in God and compassion for others, his faith matured. With gentle humor and compassion, Killinger shows how faith is a constant, even as beliefs and the world around us change.
