This epic collaboration by writer-thinkers Dave Phillips, Quentin Steen and Randall Peg Peters will take readers on an unforgettable intellectual exploration of the Christian faith.
In Colors of God, the three authors utilize a unique conversational style to raise key questions and challenge theological assumptions about what constitutes Christian faith and how to embody that within a church community. This book finds itself within the Emerging Church stream and yet moves beyond mere theological arguments.
Instead, the authors attempt to lay out a useful framework for what it means to practically live out one's faith in light of the Kingdom of God. Using colors to depict the different aspects of the Kingdom, Colors of God is the perfect book for anyone who has ever questioned parts of their belief or wanted to give up on their church but is looking for some well thought through answers.
