View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Confessions of a Bible Thumper is Michael Camp's examination that sent him on an illuminating spiritual adventure, a tenacious quest for a vibrant but reasoned faith in God. His deepening doubts propelled him to uncover nine "heretical" revelations that turn evangelical theology on its head. Through entertaining personal vignettes and lively conversations over craft beer, readers learn how he ultimately adopted a new vision for a progressive - but not stereotypical - faith in Christ. Sure to rattle the Religious Right and befuddle the Secular Left, this brutally honest personal pilgrimage will both challenge and encourage readers to rethink all things sacred and embrace a faith full of grace and reason.   Reviews & Endorsements"Camp's book marks an important milestone. It adds another chapter to a growing body of literature about what it is like to awake from the evangelical dream and discover that you've been living a nightmare. I recommend this book!" -Frank Schaeffer, Author of Crazy for God 
"...a provocative and insightful memoir by an evangelical Christian who dares to quit blindly accepting the bible-based' assumptions of fundamentalism..." -Mel White, Author of Stranger at the Gate and Holy Terror 
"...has all the marks of a spiritual classic. Its honesty, courage, humor, and real God' experiences are the mandatory rungs in the ladder people need to climb out of today's toxic cocktail of fundamentalism and cynicism, and walk boldly into the dazzling light of authentic spirituality. Bravo!" -Jessica Maxwell, Author of Roll Around Heaven
"An important book for both conservative and progressive Christians. Much of it reads like a novel while being highly instructive." -Marcus Borg, Jesus scholar and author of 21 books

"An excellent book for anyone searching for answers. This book covers how one man explored all aspects of what it means to be religious in today's world. It is very well written and I highly recommend it." -- Gary Snodgrass "Goodreads"

"Easy read. Very informative for anyone with questions. Presented several new ideas, brought clarity to some old notions, but also came short of where I have come to in a few areas." -- Bill "Goodreads"
