What the book is about:
This autobiography of Rev. Curt’s spiritual journey offers a commentary on why much of the theology and current practices of the Christian Faith are no longer viable for the 21st century Christian. His historical insights, reviews of the Aramaic and Greek texts, and metaphorical views are based on his life-long study of the Christian scriptures.
Today’s Christians have accepted advancements in many areas, including science, technology and medicine, but would not want to be treated medically by a doctor of antiquity or give up their computer and smart phone for the quill and parchment. The only exception has been in religion. Many Christians still want to honor the ethics, dogmas and rituals of an antiquated idea of God. Such antiquated theology sometimes creates a faith of exclusivity that forgets the basic teaching of Jesus to love one another.
Curt brings to this discussion the universal principle of Divine Love that is found in all the religious traditions. All humanity, everything in the universe was created in God’s love regardless of race, color, gender, or creed. We all share the same DNA, and while all traditions honor the one God, there are many paths to that Divine Love.
For Rev. Curt, the simple fundamental truth of the Christian faith for the 21st century is found in Micah 6:8, “What does the Lord require of you? To serve justice, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.”
