This book is for you!
I wrote this book while going through a series of crises in my family. The way Christian people reacted to me profoundly impacted my faith. I grew closer to Jesus and extremely disillusioned with church culture.
As I wrote each day, my purpose was writing for a friend of mine who is an amazing woman and works as a stripper. I want her to see how Jesus would accept her. I want her to know that he sees her as his beloved daughter and wants her to know how valued she is.
But I also realized that my disillusionment with church culture was causing me to “read like an English teacher” and less like a theologian. I found a lot of healing and hope. The stories I found were AH-MAZING in a way I’d never known before.
In an age when people are abandoning the church in droves, I think if they all met the Jesus of the book of Luke, they’d love him. He fully accepted people on the fringes of society and empowered them to rise above their situations all while constantly confronting religious hypocrisy and elitism.
