I loved every minute of it even though I was deeply challenged in some of my beliefs and specifically the history of what some people have done in the name of Christianity. I am a doctoral student and this book has been a lifesaver in helping me reconcile my faith with things that I know and agree with in science and history.
This is one of the most important books I have read in recent years!
Brian makes a compelling case for both the end of a consumptive belief driven Christian faith/religion that has long colluded in the destruction of our planet, AND a call toward a faith driven by values of love and justice for all. He lays out how this is a radical transformation of how faith is both lived and expressed. The proposal is nothing short of a complete social movement - a spiritual migration akin to the radical change brought on originally by Jesus himself.
This book is brilliantly articulated and profoundly practical. The reader is shown critical cultural and socio-political trends that have long shackled American Christianity, and given tools to rethink faith, church, community and personal calling. This book points the way toward a faith that is once again relevant, dynamic, liberating and a source of healing in our world.
If your heart has longed to experience faith as empowering and deeply authentic, there is no more important book to read than this!
