Bringing together the voices of top Bible scholars and church leaders — including Diana Butler Bass, John Dominic Crossan, Amy-Jill Levine, Brian McLaren, Helen Prejean, and John Shelby Spong — pastors David Felten and Jeff Procter-Murphy present a lively and stimulating tour of what it means to be a “progressive” Christian. Based on the bestselling dvd course of the same name, Living the Questions explores matters many churches are afraid to address including the humanity of Jesus and homosexuality, and examines in a new light traditional faith topics such as the Bible, atonement, salvation, the rapture, and more.
“A welcome book that is bold (without being contentious) and courageous (without needing to be triumphant), Felten and Procter-Murphy give voice to a faith that provides a profound alternative to the dominant ideology of “American Christianity.” Attention should be paid!”
– Walter Brueggemann, professor emeritus, Columbia theological seminary
“A rich, wise, helpful and important book – virtually a manifesto of progressive Christianity.”
– Marcus Borg, author of Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time
“In a clear and masterful way, Felten and Procter-Murphy . . . open up a pathway to a more vital and even exciting way to approach the Christian faith in the 21st century.”
– Fred C. Plumer, President, ProgressiveChristianity.org
“David Felten and Jeff Procter-Murphy speak with high levels of credibility to the deep and abiding human hunger that yearns for a Christian future.”
– John Shelby Spong, author of Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World
