"And that s the brilliance of this book: Kent has done the hard work of becoming a particular kind of person: honest, open, following the questions wherever they lead. This book comes out of that pursuit, out of that kind of life, and it s really, really inspiring. Kent has been this kind of friend and teacher to me for almost twenty years."--Rob Bell, author of What is the Bible? and Love Wins
Kent Dobson climbed Mount Sinai in search of the God who had eluded him.
Instead he got bitten by a camel.
Dobson was climbing the ladder of Christianity, too: a worship leader, teacher, and ultimately senior pastor of one of the largest and most prominent churches in America. But he was growing disillusioned with the faith, at least inside the shell of organized religion.
One Sunday morning, he preached to his congregation, "I don t know what the word God even means anymore." He soon left the church, but his quest for God became more intense than ever.
In Bitten by a Camel, Dobson deconstructs much of what passes as Christianity. Then, engaging with Jesus and the Bible, he reconstructs a faith that is fulfilling, life-giving, and true--true to himself and true to God. Dobson's message is funny, poignant, and winsome. And it is ultimately, like the message of Jesus himself, hopeful.
