9781440170249: Trying to Be Religious in the Best of All Possible Worlds: An American Religious Odyssey

Reverend Duey has both studied and travelled widely across the years. He was a sailor in the U. S. Navy for a hitch and then attended university and several seminaries, including graduate work at Princeton Theological Seminary. He finished his doctoral degree at Andover Newton Theological Seminary, in the Boston area. This book describes a variety of religious experiences and schools of thought, leading from the ridiculous to the sublime. In it the author seeks to provide a step-by-step growth and refinement of theology and personal devotion. He has turned his personal experiences and gift for fiction into an imaginative romp across the landscape of twentieth century America and its missionary endeavors.

About the Author:

The author has spent decades in professional religious work, from Sunday school teacher to seminary professor. His main work was as a pastor engaged in regular ministry. He has authored various works and books in the fields of religion and genealogy. As a husband and father he has helped his five children through their training, encouraging them to achieve more than the ordinary. Three of them have gone on to graduate school, and all are professionally employed. After working in both northern Alaska and Ecudaor, South America in education, Reverend Duey returned to the States and has lived in Connecticut. Across the years he has engendered an interest in family history among his wider family. He and his wife, Eleanor, have travelled widely in America and Europe. He speaks several languages and has enjoyed finding distant relatives in France and Sweden. Duey intends his book to serve the educational purposes of the Faith. It has the potential to become a book for review among the religiously informed groups with some previous background in religion. In some ways it could be thought of as the antithesis of some of the more easy-answer books in circulation, especially those that seek to provide all the answers to ages-long questions about God and destiny. At the same time, it does not attempt to explain ideas such as the doctrine of the Trinity or the location of Heaven. It helps to know something about church history and the ideas of modern science and philosophy, but not a great deal.
