We often hear testimony of individuals who have left Evangelical Christianity or Roman Catholicism to become atheists. But rarely do we get to hear the story of those who have retained a share of their faith, yet moved it to a more "progressive" view. Dr. Young, who describes himself as a Christian agnostic, brings us one such story. His journey involves an evolving view of scripture and a general distrust of human language as an effective communication tool, especially when the language is centuries old, and/or is considered only in a logocentric approach (ignoring phonocentric considerations).
Dr. Shawn Young is Director of Music Management Studies at Clayton State University, Morrow, Georgia.
