Resurrecting Religion: Finding Our Way Back to the Good News

Front Cover
NavPress, Feb 2, 2018 - Religion - 240 pages
There’s lots of bad religion out there. But the answer isn’t no religion, it’s true religion: living out—publicly and communally—what we say we believe privately and individually. True religion puts flesh on the bones of faith. Resurrecting Religion offers an inspiring, stretching vision for finding our way back to the good news of our faith.
