Faithful Catholic priestbecomeatheist psychologist shows how he shucked and how the reader can shuck childhood prejudices and superstitions to thrill to the modified Golden Rule. This book could have been titled The Book of Tolerance. The psychologist author recognizes that every child learns a lot of traditions and beliefs when too young to evaluate them. Such prejudices are quite deeply ingrained into the subconscious. They are often very difficult to overcome even in adult years with further experience and education. (Dr. Uhl was already in his 30s when he finally got free; many people never get free.) Each person grows up and learns to analyze and think critically at different speeds. Even in the same family one sibling may remain opinionated and prejudiced, stuck in the past, while another thoughtfully unlearns childhood myths and becomes a broadminded adult. Therefore, tolerance of such differing rates of learning and unlearning is necessary for civilized peace in a pluralistic society; this includes family and friends! Such patient understanding is less difficult when one follows the new Golden Rule: Treat others as you would reasonably want and expect them to treat you if your roles were reversed. The thrilling details of an exciting journey with our planetary neighbors are clearly laid out in the little book, Out of God's Closet: This Priest Psychologist Chooses Friendly Atheism. A generous sprinkling of earthy humor richly seasons this revolutionary book for enjoyable spiritual nourishment.

How can a loving God send people to hell? Isn’t it arrogant to believe Jesus is the only way to God? What is up with holy war in the Old Testament? Many of us fear God has some skeletons in the closet. Hell, judgment, and holy war are hot topics for the Christian faith that have a way of igniting fierce debate far and wide. These hard questions leave many wondering whether God is really good and can truly be trusted. The Skeletons in God's Closet confronts our popular caricatures of these difficult topics with the beauty and power of the real thing. Josh Butler reveals that these subjects are consistent with, rather than contradictory to, the goodness of God. He explores Scripture to reveal the plotlines that make sense of these tough topics in light of God’s goodness. From fresh angles, Josh deals powerfully with such difficult passages as: The Lake of Fire Lazarus and the Rich Man The Slaughter of Canaanites in the Old Testament Ultimately, The Skeletons in God's Close uses our toughest questions to provoke paradigm shifts in how we understand our faith as a whole. It pulls the “skeletons out of God’s closet” to reveal they were never really skeletons at all.

He survived a turbulent childhood in war-torn London, earned degrees with honors from Cambridge University, was ordained in the Church of England, became an Anglican worker-priest, and emigrated to the United States. He has been a prolific broadcaster for the BBC, helped organize the Public Broadcasting System in America, was a founding chairman of National Public Radio, and became a senior management consultant for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. He designed and directed the first system of suicide and crisis counseling centers in California (a model for later centers nationwide) and helped found the Parsonage, an Episcopalian ministry on behalf of gay rights in the Castro section of San Francisco. And all the while, Bernard Duncan Mayes struggled to reconcile his views on sexuality--and his experience as a gay man--with his theological and cultural beliefs. In an entirely honest and engaging voice, Mayes offers considerably more than autobiographical recollections of his life as priest, journalist, university teacher and administrator, and gay rights activist. Throughout Escaping God's Closet, Bernard Mayes recounts how social and doctrinal oppression posed fundamental challenges to his own belief system, but led him to revelations about sexuality, Christianity, and the nature of human existence itself.

When an ancient skeleton is discovered in Israel, will it shed new light on the life of Jesus or plunge the world into chaos? Dr. Jonathan Weber, Harvard professor and biblical scholar, is looking forward to his sabbatical year on an archaeological dig in Israel. But a spectacular find that seems to be an archaeologist’s dream-come-true becomes a nightmare that many fear will be the death rattle of Christianity. Carefully researched and compellingly written, A Skeleton in God’s Closet explores the tension between faith and doubt when science and religion collide. In the end, it’s a thought-provoking page-turner, driven by one man’s determination to find the truth—no matter the cost.

Description: While in school, Ovily Pumpkin was labeled as a "misfit", and through no fault of his own, was bullied by the other children; causing Ovily to choose to become a loner. Yet Ovily Pumpkin is found to be no ordinary boy, in a variety of ways he is unique. He has the ability to view both bullies, and bullying, from a higher perspective. He discovered uncommon and successful coping mechanisms for most of life's challenges. He recognizes that we can't control the experiences that cross our path, or the people who create these experiences, but he came to realize that it was Ovily's reaction to life's experiences that mattered most in the scheme of things; in addition to finding the beauty that 'alone time' can gift us with. Ovily always looked for the good in life, and always found it; and shares these discoveries with the reader. His attitude and perspective on both the ordinary and the extraordinary are always birthed through inspirational perspectives, and provoke 'food' for new thought. His life becomes filled with adventure, in which he discovers that he has the unusual ability to communicate with nature, and that nature speaks back; and has much to communicate, to share, and to teach we humans, and Ovily shares these occurrences with us.
