Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692347240, Paperback)

Letting Go will take you on a journey around the world. From a tragic river drowning in Oregon, to the exposure of a new virus in San Francisco. From a climb up Mt. Fuji, to dancing with thunderous drums in Nigeria. From caring for HIV patients, to becoming a father to orphans in South Africa. This is a memoir which unfolds the author’s spiritual journey as he began to understand himself after experiencing several disappointments with God. When his life took several unexpected turns, these dark periods deconstructed his worldview. It’s the story of a life filled with secret internal pain that ultimately led him to ask questions about the God he grew up with. What he discovered is a lifestyle of letting go that brought a refreshing freedom and new understanding about himself and the message and life of Jesus. He shares a deeply personal journey revealing his appreciation for living a blessed life in the present moment. This is not theology or philosophy, but a story that calls into question all the certainties often held out to us by religion.
