More About This Book

Overview

Robert Jensen, a life-long activist fighting for women's rights, racial equality, and global justice, reveals with this book the emotional journey that brought him back to the church after an entire adulthood of religious indifference.Our world is perched on the verge of chaos, he warns. As political, economic, cultural, and ecological crises peak, the decisions we make are likely to have permanent consequences for our future and for the fate of our planet. In our nation, what underlies this chaos is a spiritual unrest, a stubborn conflict that has gotten in the way of understanding and slowed theological progress to a glacial crawl.Drawing on the Old and New Testaments, contemporary philosophy, common sense, personal intuition, and progressive politics, Jensen offers a full defense of his conclusion, holding its consistency up to the best of religious and secular teachings. A touchingly open memoir that is also a study of the religious debate in America, ''All My Bones Shake'' marks an entirely new communion; a way to look at religion as a tool with which we may create closer ties to all humanity and begin to create a just and sustainable society - to face with confidence the uncertainty of our lives. Both political and spiritual, radical and universal, public and very personal, Jensen's warmhearted text is a passionate testament to the potential of religion to offer sanity and stability in the face of our culture's growing turmoil.
