Reverend Buzz Thomas knows there are millions of Americans out there who just want honest answers to life's biggest questions. In 10 Things Your Minister Wants to Tell You, Rev. Thomas cuts through all the agendas the Bible is used for today and finally says what many ministers are afraid to say when someone asks.

- How did it all begin?
- Why are we here?
- What is the Bible?
- Is there really such a thing as a miracle?
- How do I please God?
- What about women?
- What about homosexuality?
- What about other faiths?
- What happens after we die?
- How will it all end?

Filled with humor and warmth, Rev. Thomas's answers are long on love, short on judgment, filled with surprises and replete with faith for whatever the twenty-first century may hold.

REV. OLIVER "BUZZ" THOMAS is a Baptist minister and constitutional lawyer who currently serves as executive director of the Niswonger Foundation and writes a monthly column for USA Today.

Editorial Reviews

"A fascinating read, regardless of religious or political affiliation." -Book Page"Thomas's 108-page easy-read is a clear, intelligent presentation of many of the issues on the ragged edge of the cultural divide growing in America between religious conservatives and religious liberals." -Tulsa World"Just about the time you thought Jesus was coming again toting a gun, waving a flag, bashing his gay brothers and sisters, angling for a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, and auditioning for a gig on Hannity & Colmes, Buzz Thomas has the audacity to remind us to look for the real thing--the Jesus who spoke of love, considered the lilies of the field and the sparrow on the wing, called for the distribution of wealth to the widow and orphan and the lame and the halt, and informed selfish rich people to prepare for judgment while 'the least of these' are moved to the head of the line. Is Timothy LaHaye in for a surprise or not?" -Bill Moyers"As a lifelong advocate for justice and for teaching that strong faith can coexist with tolerance of other views, Rev. Oliver Thomas has never been afraid to challenge the status quo." -Marian Wright Edelman, President and Founder of the Children's Defense Fund"Buzz Thomas makes God accessible even for those who find church difficult." -Rev. Joan Brown Campbell, former General Secretary of the National and World Councils of Churches
