Rescuing Jesus
Rescuing Jesus: How People of Color, Women, and Queer Christians Are Reclaiming Evangelicalism | Deborah Jian Lee
5 posts | 2 read | 1 reading | 6 to read
An inside look at the young, diverse, progressive Christians who are transforming the evangelical movement Most of what we think we know about evangelicals is wrong, or is well on its way to being outdated. Generational changes and the shifting racial make-up of evangelical Christians are changing what we think of as evangelical culture and politics. Today's young evangelicals are more likely than their elders to accept same-sex marriage, more inclined to think of "pro-life" issues as being about support for the poor, and more accepting of equality between men and women. Those on the leading edge of progressive evangelicalism--white, black, Asian, and Hispanic, as well as straight and LGBTQ, believers--are working to change the substance of evangelicalism and to wrest power away from conservative Christians. In "Rescuing Jesus," Deborah Jian Lee, a journalist and former evangelical, brings readers deep inside this progressive movement and tells the stories of the young women and men at the forefront of it. Given the clout that conservative evangelicals still hold in national politics, Lee argues, this movement is important not only for the future of evangelicalism but for the future of our country.

Cuddles and reading a new book this morning. Not a bad way to start Tuesday :)

quirkyreader How is the book so far? 2mo
SamanthaMarie @quirkyreader I was able to get the introduction finished before our rapid fire day began and the set up is good! I appreciate her reasons for writing the book and all the time she took for research and interviews. I think it is going to be really good! 2mo

Years ago white American Christianity began to rub me wrong and now I‘ve almost all but given it up. As I explore my faith, I‘m learning a lot from people of color and their walks in faith.

There‘s actually a lot more in progress but I‘m just including the ones I haven‘t started for the sake of brevity. #FebruaryTBR #ReadingResolutions
