What if God is better than we have ever imagined?


About the New Book

A Spiritual Evolution is a story of transformation and growth — a journey from dogmatism and fear to freedom and love. With self-effacing humor and refreshing candor, John MacMurray examines the story of God he inherited from his “religious” family. What he uncovers are familiar and all too common distortions that shaped his view of God and crippled his spirit. Then, like a seasoned teacher, John probes our beliefs with a stream of relentless questions that had haunted him for years. Religious fears are exposed and assumptions topple like dominos promising a renewed sense of hope, joy, and freedom. 

If you have been left holding the ashes of your deconstructed faith with nothing left to trust or love—then this book is for you.
