All-church Read

About the Book: When UCC Pastor Lillian Daniel apologized to a total stranger for every bad thing that had ever been said or done in the name of Christianity, he was surprised that she felt responsible for all that. (The Inquisition? Salem witch trials? Don’t forget imperialism, capitalism, and racism. So embarrassing!) It became a wake-up call for Rev. Daniel. In this book, Daniel argues that it’s time for Christians--like her--to stop apologizing, take a little pride, and realize that how we talk about Christian community matters. With disarming candor and just the right amount of humor, Daniel urges open-minded Christians to explore ways to talk about their faith journeys that are reasonable, rigorous, and real.
