the cartoon that started it all
"Bully the Question" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
I drew and posted this cartoon five years ago!
And what did this lead to? Many, many more cartoons addressing the issue of certainty, doubt, and questions... as well as the silencing, abuse, and bullying of those who ask them.
And what did this lead to? My newest book that you can order now, Questions Are The Answer: nakedpastor and the search for understanding
I'm very excited about it because I feel it is going to be a very helpful book for those of you who are asking questions. Maybe they're silent right now. But you're asking them. You're doubting. You're wondering. My hope is that this book is going to shed light on your journey. I tell you my story and how questioning lead to a very real, tangible peace of mind that has never gone away.
There are some who don't like the book because it doesn't promote the evangelical, orthodox position. In fact, it challenges it simply by allowing people to question it. The establishment doesn't appreciate challenges. It suppresses questions. It punished doubt.
So please get the book
! Give yourself a gift. Or, give it for a friend or family member who is going through a time of questioning. Or give it to someone who is having difficulty understanding where you are in your questioning. This will open their eyes for you.
