Passion, logic and a call to action to increase social justice.
I recommend this book to anyone who claims to have religion, as well as those who have left the church due to intolerance.
Roger L Ray, the pastor of a community church in the USA, writes very honestly about the urgent need for people of faith to practice and preach what he calls "evidence-based religion"; to own up about the pre-scientific assumptions of the Bible and to hear a prophetic call away from contractural, salvation-securing beliefs and practices to those of Jesus' call to a life of radical compassion. He does not claim to have all the answers but he determined to be honest to himself, to others and to "the One in whom we live and move and have our being". If you're looking for food and encouragement in your attempt to be similarly truthful, this book is for you.
Like Roger Ray and listen to his messages on FB often. was really looking forward to this but left disappointed.
It is so American that often I found myself just lost with the cultural references and illustrations.
It turns into a political rant and doesn't address the faith and practice I was hoping it would.
