Here is the back cover promotional description for my forthcoming book Progressive Christians Love Jesus Too.
Some Christians want to silence the progressive conversation. Don’t let them.
They’ve been called “progressive Christians.” Their ranks include Brian McLaren, Rob Bell, Peter Enns, Rachel Held Evans, John Pavlovitz, Richard Rohr, and many others.
Over the last two decades, they have authored award-winning books, headlined bustling conferences, helmed popular podcasts, and amassed a formidable social media presence. Along the way, they have deeply influenced, inspired, and challenged a generation of Christians to rethink their faith for the twenty-first century.
But what if they are not Christians at all? What if these revered authors, pastors, and public speakers are really wolves in shepherds’ clothing who live a different faith and proclaim a different gospel? Those are the extraordinary claims that Alisa Childers makes in her popular book Another Gospel?
In Progressive Christians Love Jesus Too, professor and theologian Randal Rauser provides a careful, point-by-point rebuttal to Childers’ incendiary claims. Along the way, he highlights the nuances and multiple insights to be found in the progressive conversation and he provides a cautionary warning to any Christian who is in danger of confusing their own sectarian theological tradition with the glorious faith once and for all delivered unto the saints, a faith that must be renewed for every new generation.
