Publisher's Summary

Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel has said that there is a new commandment: ''Thou shalt not stand idly by.''
This audiobook articulates a progressive faith that represents a true marriage of the academic work of the modern biblical critical movement and the historical Jesus work of the Jesus Seminar applied within the life of an active parish. Setting aside the magic and superstition found in much of traditional religious life and affirming an evidence-based approach to faith, author Roger Ray strives to apply Wiesel's injunction to actively respond to the injustice, violence, and discrimination in the world.
In concrete terms, Ray describes what progressives can embrace intellectually and morally, and how those convictions can be lived out in a faith community.

Much needed at this moment in history

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.
