Editorial Reviews

From the Author

An Unorthodox Faith proposes an alternative totraditional Christian creeds and theology with a simpler humanisttheology of love and compassion. It explores the implications for faithand ethics based on the proposition that "God is love"--not a lovingsupernatural being,but, more radically, frail human love itself. Thebook deconstructs traditional images of God as cosmic creator andoccasional interventionist, the apocalyptic image of Christ, the imageof the Holy Spirit as a supernatural being, medieval images of heavenand hell,ancient doctrines of sin and atonement, and contemporarybeliefs in resurrection and eternal life. When all of these concepts are removed from traditional Christianity, what remains is a deeplyspiritual humanism of service and social action--a way of living thatreflects the words and deeds of the historical Jesus.

Alternatively, this book will present a simple postmodern theology that presents Godas a symbolic personification of human love; Jesus as a teacher ofradical compassion and an outspoken agent of social justice;the kingdomof God as a "conspiracy of love" that challenges the unjust systems ofthe world; the Way of Jesus as a journey of transformation from cultural captivity to a counter-cultural life of activism and service; the cross as a symbol of the consequences of defying the authority and power ofthe domination system; and the resurrection of Jesus as the epiphany ofhis ongoing spirit and presence in a vision, in a voice, or in the faceof a stranger.
