Today I sit down & chat with author Rick Herrick.
Rick Herrick has a PhD from Tulane University, is a former tenured university professor and magazine editor, and is the author of six published novels and three works of nonfiction. His musical play, Lighthouse Point, was performed as a fundraiser for the Martha’s Vineyard Museum in 2015.
Today we talk about his book “Moving Beyond Belief: A New Focus for the Christian Faith.”
This book argues that a religion centered around biblical belief has not worked when it comes to living the teachings of Jesus. For many Christians their religion has become an ideology which doesn’t touch their hearts. The central argument of the book is that we must shift the focus of our religion away from biblical belief to a sense of the deep, transforming love that comes from knowing God. The book provides detailed instructions on how such a knowing takes place through the use of Eastern mindfulness techniques. In making such a change, Christians will finally come to a place where they can work with God to make the world a better place.
