Please join us for a productive discussion on Christianity today, the joyful overlapping of faith, progress and scholarship, lead by local authors Pastor Dr. Kevin Thomas and David Chumney. All faiths and walks-of-life are welcome!
Dr. Kevin L. Thomas’ The Immoral Christian addresses the twisting of the simple concept of loving God and loving people, rising from the ashes of the current state of the western church in an unconditional embrace. Dr. Thomas and his wife, Melissa, live in Tuscaloosa where he serves as senior pastor of Forest Lake United Methodist Church. He received his BA from The University of Alabama (Roll Tide), his Master of Divinity from Memphis Theological Society, and his Doctor of Ministry from Asbury Theological Seminary.
David Chumney’s Jesus Eclipsed is a carefully researched analysis of the scholarly, historical pursuit of the real Jesus, and why we factually know so little about this pivotal first-century figure. For nearly three decades, author David Chumney was an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA). He is no longer a practicing Christian, but he used his extensive background in biblical studies to write Jesus Eclipsed, which he hopes will give readers a new perspective on how the scripture accounts of Jesus’ life originated and the difference that makes for historical research.
