Book Review: A House for Hope

by Michael DeLeon-Walker

A House for Hope by John A.Buehrens and Rebecca Ann Parker is a well written introduction to progressive theology.  The basic problem it addresses is “how can progressives present a cogent and grounded position alternative to the widely accepted fundamentalist outlook on the place of religion in society.  How can we repair the broken elements of society without losing hope?”

If we come together in honesty and humility to build our own congregation, if we have the fire of love, then we can speak our convictions loudly in the marketplace.  Let us carry it on.

The theology is a framework.  We choose the colors to weave on it.  Let them be the colors of our committed lives.
