Years ago, an atheist and I became friends. Over time, he warmed up to the possibility of faith. Months later he said, “I’ve had an epiphany. I realize that I don’t reject Christianity. Instead, I reject the way that intolerant Christians package Christianity.” Not long after that conversation he said, “You’ve just about convinced me on this religion stuff. So I want to know-what’s the least I can believe and still be a Christian?” Although it took many years to write it, at that moment, this book was conceived.
