Reverend Buzz Thomas knows there are millions of Americans out there who just want honest answers to life’s biggest questions. In 10 Things Your Minister Wants to Tell You, Rev. Thomas cuts through all the agendas the Bible is used for today and finally says what many ministers are afraid to say when someone asks…

-          How did it all begin?

-          Why are we here?

-          What is the Bible?

-          Is there really such a thing as a miracle?

-          How do I please God?

-          What about women?

-          What about homosexuality?

-          What about other faiths?

-          What happens after we die?

-          How will it all end?

Filled with humor and warmth, Rev. Thomas’s answers are long on love, short on judgment, filled with surprises and replete with faith for whatever the twenty-first century may hold.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A fascinating read, regardless of religious or political affiliation."—Book Page

"Thomas's 108-page easy-read is a clear, intelligent presentation of many of the issues on the ragged edge of the cultural divide growing in America between religious conservatives and religious liberals."—Tulsa World

"Just about the time you thought Jesus was coming again toting a gun, waving a flag, bashing his gay brothers and sisters, angling for a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, and auditioning for a gig on Hannity & Colmes, Buzz Thomas has the audacity to remind us to look for the real thing—the Jesus who spoke of love, considered the lilies of the field and the sparrow on the wing, called for the distribution of wealth to the widow and orphan and the lame and the halt, and informed selfish rich people to prepare for judgment while 'the least of these' are moved to the head of the line. Is Timothy LaHaye in for a surprise or not?"—Bill Moyers

"As a lifelong advocate for justice and for teaching that strong faith can coexist with tolerance of other views, Rev. Oliver Thomas has never been afraid to challenge the status quo."—Marian Wright Edelman, President and Founder of the Children's Defense Fund

"Buzz Thomas makes God accessible even for those who find church difficult."—Rev. Joan Brown Campbell, former General Secretary of the National and World Councils of Churches

    Dare to Think

    This book was actually given to me by my friend who is a minister. I loved this book. It shares some of the religious beliefs that I currently have, and answers alot of questions for me that I have always had about religion. I would say that if you are someone who is not very open minded about religion and become affended very easily then this book is not for you. If you have questions on why churches seem to hold onto things that just dont seem to fit todays time, then read away you should enjoy. it goes over the bible when it was written and how there are alot of things that seem to be taken to literally in todays times. speaking of hell, and sexuality, and so on. small book that can be read in a day or so.
