By Michael Grello on January 14, 2007
Format: Paperback
There are several types of progressive critique of the religious right, all valuable in their own right. There is the "how the religious right violates the scripture", the "why the left is closer to the teachings of Christ and finally "what steps do we take to repair the damage they have done?" This book falls into the third category. The essays enclosed provide practical steps for progressive Christians heal the society that the right has wounded. Highly recommended.

This is a must-have for progressive Christians who are desire an antedote to the viewpoints of the "Religious Right". Progressives have not been very adept at articulating what they believe with strength of conviction. This book is a compilation of essays from some brilliant thinkers who give theological grounding to what the "Left" has been saying all along.
