Flexible Christianity

Quaker minister Philip Gulley has a new book out called “The Evolution of Faith: How God is Creating a Better Christianity.” The book description is right up my alley:

“For too long, American Christianity has been poisoned by a narrowness of mind and spirit, demanding we believe the implausible, affirm the absurd, and despise the different. For many, the concepts of original sin, a God who sends people to hell, and Jesus as the only path to God can no longer be stomached. Thus thoughtful people leave the church in droves, no longer willing to diminish their lives or the lives of others for the sake of faith.

But what if there were another way? What if God wanted us to grow and change, both in our theology and our beliefs? In The Evolution of Faith, Philip Gulley invites us to put aside slavish obedience to antiquated faith claims and worldviews that no longer ring true, and discover what we really believe, rather than what we’ve always been taught.”

Gulley’s last book, “If the Church Were Christian: Rediscovering the Values of Jesus,” has, as one might imagine, a wide range of comments over at Amazon.
