Good News: White Millennial Christians Leaving the Church

That seemsImage: Bound hands reasonable, if Christian faith and practice devolves into following the path of human reason.

Let My People Go!
by Dr. Stan Moody
Dr. Moody's Book Let My People Go! Following Jesus into our Jails and Prisons is available on Amazon in a number of formats.

" Let My People Go is a twelve-step invitation to our American church culture to examine what we are supposed to be doing as Christians, what we are doing, and whether what we are doing is standing in the way of what we are supposed to be doing."
