An increasing portion of the American population describes itself as “spiritual but not religious.” This may be viewed as an indication that there is more faith to be found everywhere around us. In Grounded, Diana Butler Bass uses emotionally affecting prose to trace how spiritual practice escaped the confines of houses of worship to suffuse the entire human experience, from nature to politics.
Brian D. McLaren, a leading voice in Convergence Christianity, examines ten pressing questions facing the church and its members. Referring throughout to matters of the world and the Word alike, McLaren shows how believers can bring their beliefs and commitments to bear as they shape the church of the future. He helps readers find a biblical basis for their ruminations on the guidance of the church regarding topics such as violent conflict, human sexuality, and appropriate interaction with people from other faith traditions.
