The LtQ Story
Living the Questions is not the product of a denominational workgroup or other institutional effort aimed at simply dressing up the theological status quo. Instead, it is the response to the search for a practical tool to bring together, equip, and re-educate thinking Christians. What started out as just a single DVD series is now a growing catalog of curriculum with over a dozen titles in use by over 8,000 churches and other groups across the US, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Living the Questions Churches utilize LtQ resources for spiritual formation in a variety of ways: adult studies, retreats, new member orientations, etc.
The idea for producing programs to help people wrestle with basic questions often avoided by the Church came out of the real world needs of pastors David Felten and Jeff Procter-Murphy, both of whom serve United Methodist congregations in Arizona. Rev. Felten was trained at Boston University School of Theology and Rev. Procter-Murphy at Claremont School of Theology. Together they have over fifty years combined experience in local church ministry. David and Jeff continue to collaborate on sermons and new resources for LtQ. They coauthored Living the Questions: The Wisdom of Progressive Christianity, published by HarperOne (a division of HarperCollins).
