Description
Information
Butler Bass reveals the movements‚ personalities‚ and spiritual practices that continue to inform and ignite contemporary Christian activism and social justice reforms in the name of Jesus. The book will offer up a much-needed "other side of the story" for liberal and progressive Christians drawing from examples of alternative practices evidenced in every period of Christian history:

--Care for the environment and celebrating God in nature
--Defining compassion‚ hospitality‚ and social justice as the primary function of the church
--Pacifism as the dominant Christian response to war
--Highlighting the female attributes of God
--Celebrating human sexuality as a gift from God

Just as Christianity for the Rest of Us tells the modern story of how and why liberal church congregations are resurfacing with a new-found vitality‚ this new book provides the historical evidence that legitimizes these movements as authentically Christian. This is the book that progressives and liberals have been waiting for--a deeply researched history of Christianity that sheds new light on the underreported personalities and movements of the faith.
