This weekend, read this book. Pulling together analysis from Harvey Cox, Brian McLaren, Phyllis Tickle and others, Diana analyzes the shifts in Christianity which explain – among many other things –
- why faithful people in my denomination want to leave the PCUSA to join the ECO or EPC while other faithful people want to remain in the PCUSA
- why the “how” questions (“How do I believe?”) is a better question today than the “what” questions (“What do I believe?”)
I love this book. It sparks ideas for theological education, sermons, liturgy, and endless grappling conversations over coffee. Your brain, soul, and faith communities will thank you.
