Robin Tramble interviewed me on 7/14/09 on the subject "Why Forgiveness Tests Our Faith", during her awesome Dynamic Women of Faith Telesummit. (Recording issues required that the interview be split into two parts - Part II is here.)

My transformation from atheist to born-again Christian minister was fodder for a second 60-minute interview with Evangelist Maureen Chen and co-host Juergen Mair on Kingdom via the BlogTalkRadio network on Saturday, 7/25/09.

About My Book
This area does not yet contain any content.

Stepping into the Light: You’re a Christian, what now? is a great primer for the new adult Christian, as well as a devotional and inspiring Christian living guidebook.

Written by Diane L. Harris, the daughter of a South Bronx born Jew and a Jamaican-American ex-Episcopalian Jewish convert, Stepping into the Light is the fearless testimony of a former atheist who admits that while Christian salvation erases the threat of eternal damnation, becoming a Christian is not a magical pill for the ills of life on earth.

Combining curiosity, transparency, a gift for simplifying erudition and a palpable joy, Minister Diane explores the questions for God that inundated her as a “baby believer.”

With clarity and wielding a humble sense of humor, this woman of God leads the way to a down-to-earth relationship with a loving Messiah by answering such important questions as: What’s the meaning of salvation? Who do I become when I’m born again? Do I need to know about spiritual warfare? How is the Old Testament relevant to me as a Christian? What does the New Testament teach? What promises does God have for me? Can I contribute to the kingdom of God?

If you are a Christian, “baby believer” or not, who is asking yourself, “what now?” this book is written for you.

Introducing the Author

Diane L. Harris

As a former atheist raised by a Jewish father and a Jamaican-American mother who brought her up in the Episcopal Church, Minister Diane L. Harris has a unique testimony. She shares that story in her just-published guidebook for new Christians entitled Stepping into the Light: You’re a Christian, what now?

From the age of 14 until the age of 44, Minister Harris shut out the call of Jesus until she finally could do nothing but surrender. Less than one year later, she received and acknowledged her call to the ministry. Over the last five years, Minister Harris has led Children’s Church, taught and supervised Adult Sunday School, and presented her testimony at churches in Tennessee, Virginia, and New York. Currently she ministers at Koinonia Faith Church in Richmond, Virginia, led by her husband, Pastor Benjamin W. Harris, Jr.

Exhibiting a disarming sense of humor and a compassionate heart, Minister Diane L. Harris eagerly relates what God has done for her personally. But Stepping into the Light: You’re a Christian, what now? is equally about finding answers in God’s word to the myriad of questions which new believers (and even not-so-new believers) need answered.

"At my baptism," says Minister Harris, "as soon as I stepped out of the water, all I could think was ‘what now?’ That’s where the title of my book originated. "I sensed that salvation and baptism could not be the end of my search for meaning in life, but only the beginning. The book is about answering that question, ‘what now?’"
