What I Have Come to Believe

By the Rev. Arthur H. Holt

Are you wavering in some of your theological convictions? Have you given faith the boot from your life, believing it has no place in our modern scientific world? Or are you confused about how to reconcile what you read in Scripture with the “love all” model Jesus Christ offers in his own life? From conservative evangelical to theological liberal, the spiritual journey of retired South Carolina United Methodist pastor the Rev. Arthur H. Holt has evolved over the years. Here, Holt explores his theology, reflecting on everything from abortion, science, sexuality, and the End Times to sin, the spirit, and the Bible.



“It’s like he is talking directly to ‘everyhuman’ one on one, with no artificiality, arrogant professionalism, or parental condescension. It is the most honest approach I’ve ever read, and I deeply appreciate it.”
— The Rev. Robert Clemons
