Welcome, and thanks for stopping by!
Thomas Richard Harry writes with particular emphasis on matters political and, of late, theological. Here you will find details on “TR’s” two most recent works; his new theological “thriller” God Versus the Idea of God and his 2012 forward thinking political work, BOOM, A Revolting Situation. Both have received high marks from readers and reviewers.
The author writes to and for a broad audience. Both works being of the nature/genre they are, they’re controversial. You might think of TR as a kind of literary pugilist. You may or may not always agree with his theological or political viewpoints, observations and conclusions, but you will undoubtedly be drawn into the subject matter he writes about. Why? Because it’s about what most of us experience, consider, and live with in our everyday lives.
His new book, God Versus the Idea of God, is about that pernicious, nerve-wracking emotion, “doubt”—in this case personal religious doubt, or skepticism—affecting our religious inclination; our faith, or lack thereof, in the divine. It raises that question “I wonder?” over and over. The question and the doubts many of us have and live with are not that new, but TR’s probing of the Western Christian religious traditions in light of today’s cultural understandings offer a new perspective on the broad issues we face as we try and believe. It’s not easy for a lot of us today to “keep the faith.” Just look at recent religious statistics and trends.

The political book, BOOM! A Revolting Situation, explores the mess we call politics and invites us to take a good hard look at how we choose those we want to govern us; what we expect, or should expect, from government. It provides a yardstick as to how we can judge when the government and, most importantly the people, are satisfied with the country, i.e., when there is balance in American life.
The most recent national election made much of what TR writes politically too close to reality to be dismissed. Unfortunately, most would no doubt agree that the results we’re now witnessing have not produced what TR had in mind. Why not? Well, that’s a topic for a further book. It might have had something to do with the range of choices the American electorate was faced with. We deserve better. Whether we will get that or not, is still to be determined. If you are a believer in historical political cycles, it may be too late.
You may not see eye-to-eye on what TR has written, but you can’t ignore his willingness, his layman’s courage some might call it, to bring these sensitive matters to the public view.
So choose your poison now, the theological or political, and learn more about this well considered writer and why what he has to say may be of real interest and personal benefit to you.
Thanks again for stopping by!
