He then assembles extensive support to ...
hope//fully Publishing, 2012
www.scottevans.ie For me and for many people in the Western world, the God of Christianity has been portrayed as an old man in the sky with a stick waiting to punish those who enjoy life and the idea we've been given of holiness is a lifestyle of repression and self-denial in the hopes that one day we can get wings, sit on the clouds and sing songs for all eternity about a God that they're secretly terrified of. But what if that's because ...

Coming Back to Earth: From gods, to God, to Gaia
