A must-read for Christian thinkers

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.

I've read it twice ... starting a third read (listen)

Though I'm not ready to migrate as far as Brian on all pints yet, I've migrated further in other area.

The idea that our communities can function as "studios of love" is powerful. Jesus' prayer in John 17 and Paul's in Pillp. 1 and 2 and Eph 3; and 1 Thes 3 are similar.

I'd embrace atheists in the conversation, not just spiritual/religious types. I was an atheist and I worked in Turkey (Muslim majority) and had many wonderful atheist friends that I worked with in an organization that brought joy to children with cancer. One of my atheist friends, a human rights lawyer, helped a Christian friend when he was unjustly imprisoned for speaking in a private conversation about him faith.

I can't write more now. But I'd recommend this book to evangelicals, devangelicals (former evangelicals), fundamentalist of all sorts (religious and secular), Catholics and spiritual seekers.

It contains some honest confessions about the abuses of power and privilege that Christians need to repent of. It takes a hard look at ways relook has been used as an excuse for violence, oppression, racism, sexism and environmental irresponsibility.
