9781425965051: Through Fear To Faith: A Spiritual Journey

Through Fear to Faith tracks the author's faith journey from growing up years in a fundamentalist church, graduating from that church's college and seminary, and then making the painful decision to leave that church which had "saved" not only his drunken father, but their dysfunctional family as well. Since success rates for so called "geographical cures" aren't all that high, just becoming a Methodist minister didn't satisfy all his heart's needs. Finding a faith of his own - one that he could preach with integrity - took years of struggle; struggle that led him to therapists' offices and into Alcoholics' Anonymous meetings in church basements. Through Fear to Faith is, largely, a paean to the church - its music, its rituals, its traditions - and a promise that there is a faith to be found, if, with all our hearts, we truly seek it.

About the Author:

During his thirty-five years as a minister in the United Methodist Church, Thomas Starnes served rural, suburban and city churches, and two terms as a conference executive. After retirement, he worked for the Federal Government as a speechwriter in the Administration for Children and Families in the Department of Health and Human Services. In addition to his speech writing duties for the government, he initiated contacts with faith-based and community-based organizations. His articles have been published in the Washington Post, the Montgomery Journal, The Wilmington News Journal, and various denominational publications. One of his essays, "A Family's Blessings," appears in a book titled, Out of the Closet - Into Our Hearts. Reverend Starnes and his wife, Wave, live in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. They are the parents of three children and the grandparents of seven.
