How do you feel about Christianity? Is it authentic? Is it radical? This book is a collection of my favorite monologues I've written and used over the years in sermons and on the radio.

The reason this book reinforces my own status as nonbeliever is the (all too typical) language used. First I found little information about personal growth or enlightenment. Secondly I only found the word “love” mentioned in two of the essays. There are references that are clearly intolerant and homophobic but the worst, in my view, are the heavy-handed and too-frequent references to conflict and violence. He over uses terms and phrases like: “hatred,” “sin,” “battle,” “conquering,” “uncompromising,” “battle scarred,” “enemy,” “blood of martyrs,” “victorious,” ”the winner,” and it goes on and on. This is the very language that turned me away from the church in the first place! I’m not looking for a fight.
If you’re a devout, church-going Christian this book is for you. If you are of a different faith or a nonbeliever there’s little here for you ---except that last essay, “The Paradox of our Age.” “The Paradox of our Age” is superb and spot-on for our time ---and it contains no references to god, Jesus or the church.
The essay is frequently attributed to George Carlin (of all people!) or to Jeff Dickson, but it is in fact Dr. Moorehead who penned this eloquent piece in 1990 and published it in this compilation a few years later.
I want to buy Pastor Moorehead preaching and teaching messagestyle before he left overlake. And to encourage him to say, all GOD's gifts are without repentance. Modern technology has moved the preaching of the gospel around the world. Just because he was pushed out of his job, doesn’t mean the LORD had stopped loving and using the man of GOD. Pastor Moorehead, please don't stop preaching the gospel. You will do so much more in your latter, then you did in your former. Come back, Peter was restored and when on in faith. You have more supporters now then you had then. Send me your preach messages and I will use them to win many more souls for our LORD. You are loved ones matter what is said
