If religion is as important to us as we claim... it deserves our serious personal consideration.”

More people abandon organized religion everyday, and, according to some reports, many identify themselves as atheists in its place.

“Young people especially seem to have a problem with some of the guilt in religion,” says Paul Sago, who served 52 years in organized religion. “They resent being told what to believe and what not to believe.”

In his new book Holy Hodgepodge, Sago encourages readers to reflect on their beliefs without directing them toward any particular belief system.

With questions at the end of each chapter prompting reflection, Sago urges readers to plan a more personal spiritual journey and not give up because of doctrinal differences with the church.

“We often simply borrow or accept what someone else tells us,” says Sago. “But if religion is as important to us as we claim, determining both our here and hereafter, it deserves our serious personal consideration.”

Blending personal experience with theological reflection, Holy Hodgepodge provides a unique examination of religion and view of religion today.
