Countdown Day 33

We have created many Christianities up to this point, and they call for reassessment and, in many cases, repentance. We are not reassessing for the purpose of vilifying our ancestors in the faith or in order to contrast a dark, backward “them” with an enlightened, progressive “us,” snarkly implying that they got it wrong all along and (insert trumpet fanfare here) we have finally got it right after all these years.

From A New Kind of Christianity: Ten Questions That Are Transforming the Faith (available February 9, 2010)
“A New Kind of Christianity is a stellar accomplishment, a combination of hard tack fact and unfettered hope, an overview in delightful narrative of the long way of our coming to this time and of the multiform ways of our arriving. In every way, a dispatch from the front.” (-Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence )
