Overview

Answers offered by the most religiously conservative among us frequently sound too narrow. Questions asked by those outside the faith seem broad and unmoored. As thoughtful Christians, we often find it difficult to talk about our faith because at one extreme we’re met with simplistic truths and at the other extreme complex wonderings.

In Finding Your Voice, Jim Dant offers the thinking Christian a manageable and credible faith language. While respecting the evangelical language of his childhood and those who gave it to him, Jim addresses and offers fresh language regarding the issues of: God, Scripture, Jesus, Salvation, the church, the world, and more. He provides a language for the things we believe but are not quite sure how to say.

Jim takes us to his childhood home and introduces us to the language offered him by his faith community. He gives an honest accounting of that faith and, with an extreme dose of humanity and trust, shares with us how that faith has changed. The result is a language that makes sense both in and out of church.

Whether you agree or disagree with Jim’s conclusions, you are invited into a conversation and perhaps the discovery of your own voice.

About the Author

Over the past fifty years, Jim Dant has studied a lot of languages: Spanish, Hebrew, Greek, and of course English. He has also become fluent in the languages of: triathlon, poker, motorcycles, and guitar. Although his familiarity with these hobby-specific-vocabularies have proven themselves valuable during particular times and seasons of life, his primary language is the language of faith.

Jim was born to a Jewish mother, christened at the age of four after her marriage to his Roman Catholic stepfather, and later baptized into the Baptist faith of his adopted family. His formal faith language was learned within these homes and faith gatherings, as well as, within university and seminary classrooms. This language was also shaped by more than twenty-five years of fatherhood, almost three decades as a pastor, and a lifetime of loving the world and culture in which he lives.

Jim currently shares his faith as a conference/retreat leader, spiritual director, and partner with Faithlab.
