From the author: Am I a truth seeker or a religion keeper? That had become my internal question. Over the years, thing has kept me from the deeper universal truths more than my own stubborn doctrinal certainties and simple lack of self-honesty. I did t want to be wrong, I did t want my pastor to be wrong, and I did t want my church demination to be wrong. I wanted that old time religion to be unquestionable. For so long, I was afraid of even considering some of the more progressive philosophies of our time, t for fear of being sucked into the evil abyss, but because of what I might find and where that might lead. I began to realize that trying to answer the same old questions wasn't as important as seriously questioning the same old answers. This book is t about challenging the validity of people's experiences with the Divine, but offering an unapologetic questioning of religion's definitions and explanations of those experiences. If you want your present concepts of God, your fellow man, and the universe to stay comfortably just the way they are, then do t buy or read this book. If however, you are t afraid of re-examining your own inherited beliefs from other points of view, then Field of Grasshoppers could very well be the book you have been waiting for.
