About the Book

This is a book about the path of Jesus Christ and one man's observations while trying to walk it. It is not for the faint of heart, or of faith. It is written to Christians, primarily about Christians and the Church in general. At times, it is brutally honest. It challenges modern "Christian" teachings with the faith of those Christians who came before us. It speaks with the voice of the ancient Church within the language of psychology and today's pop culture. It shouts for a return to the core principles of what Jesus taught. It cries out that the first person who needs to be discipled is one's own self.


About the Author

Allen Bair began as a non-denominational Bible Christian, seeking to enter ministry as an overseas missionary. After a twelve-year journey through different mission boards, schools, jobs, churches, and denominations, he was ordained as a priest in the old Catholic church in 2005. Born in 1975, he grew up in Orange County, California, with undiagnosed Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism.. He has served as a pastoral associate at a parish in Huntington Beach, California, and briefly as a co-pastor at a parish in Clarksville, Tennessee. He has been married even longer to a wonderful woman, and they now live in Northern Idaho with their three children. Currently without a parish, he sees himself as a "search and rescue pastor" ministering to all those hurting and broken, whom the Lord brings his way, and he has made a commitment to refuse to turn any aside.
