Overview

Chuck Queen explores the following themes from a distinctly progressive Christian viewpoint: Scripture, faith, Christianity, salvation, discipleship, and the Beatitudes. Each chapter consists of seven reflections; each reflection is followed by questions that probe deeper into the topic and facilitate group discussion. As an introduction to progressive Christianity, the author wrote with the church in mind, providing a good resource for church discipleship and study groups.

For example, chapter 1 includes the following topics:
What the Bible Says Is Not Necessarily What God Says
The Bible Is Not an Answer Book
Reading Scripture Transformatively
Hearing the Divine Voice
How Jesus Read His Bible
Experience Generally Trumps Tradition
Honoring Sacred Texts

Each reflection is designed to stir the reader's theological imagination, spark critical thinking, and nurture Christian faith and spirituality. The articles weave together personal experiences and vignettes from literature and film, with creative biblical interpretation and theological exposition. Most of all, they are intended to ignite new questions that will inspire the reader to explore, think, and embrace the mystery of the Christian spiritual path.
