WACO, Texas (PRWEB) June 30, 2017
It was a lifetime of involvement in his Christian life and his children and grandchildren emphatically embracing the Christian religion that inspired Harvey Meredith to write “The Search: Looking for truth in the Christian Religion” (published by Xlibris in July of 2016). This study was undertaken after a near lifetime of reflection upon the beliefs and the basis of his religious teachings.
The book provides an insight into the views and understandings of Meredith, who was raised in a strict Catholic family and forced to learn a religion at the earliest age. This exercise in researching the teachings of the Catholic Church and Christian religion in general exposes the triangle of fear, guilt and doubt about the religion driven from Rome that has cemented his personal beliefs. Living through the jungle of regimented hypocrisy, lemming-like beliefs and teaching tactics, has provided the incentive for Meredith to personally investigate the subject of Christian religion and to learn as much as possible about the subject that has survived nearly 2,000 years.
“There never has been a time when more information has been available and from so many sources,” Meredith points out. “Writers are more willing to express willingness to forthright in delivering a message of truth, even when it becomes painful for some. This book challenges readers to consider differences or ‘other’ in lieu of the ‘accepted.’”
“The Search: Looking for truth in the Christian Religion” takes a realistic look at Christianity in its time. Meredith believes “the realities of myths and miracles are presented and the fantasy of childlike teachings is exposed” in the book.
