    Ukraine, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, ISIS all indicate a world in turmoil wracked by new spasms of violence. How should the Christian community respond to such upheaval? This message offers three ways: first and foremost, compassion; second deep intercessory prayer asking God to intervene in our human folly; third a consistent witness to the world that there is an alternative to the kingdoms of this world--the Kingdom of God that was taught and lived in by Jesus.

            Bringing together the voices of top Bible scholars and church leaders—including Diana Butler Bass, John Dominic Crossan, Amy-Jill Levine, Brian McLaren, Helen Prejean, and John Shelby Spong—pastors David Felten and Jeff Procter-Murphy present a lively and stimulating tour of what it means to be a "progressive" Christian. Based on the bestselling dvd course of the same name, Living the Questions explores matters many churches are afraid to address including the humanity of Jesus and homosexuality, and examines in a new light traditional faith topics such as the Bible, atonement, salvation, the rapture, and more. "A rich, wise, helpful and important book - virtually a manifesto of progressive Christianity." Marcus Borg "I'm so grateful for Living the Questions. These progressive voices offer less rigid and more expansive approaches to Christian faith, and make room for people who practice critical thinking and question the gatekeepers. They help us see that questioning the gatekeepers is exactly what Jesus was all about." Brian McLaren "A welcome book that is bold (without being contentious) and courageous (without needing to be triumphant), Felten and Procter-Murphy give voice to a faith that provides a profound alternative to the dominant ideology of 'American Christianity.' attention should be paid!" Walter Brueggemann "In a clear and masterful way, Felten and Procter-Murphy . . . open up a pathway to a more vital and even exciting way to approach the Christian faith in the 21st century." Fred Plumer "David Felten and Jeff Procter-Murphy speak with high levels of credibility to the deep and abiding human hunger that yearns for a Christian future." John Shelby Spong
