Buehrens and Rebecca Ann Parker. Book cost is $12.50 and can be ordered through the church office. The deadline for ordering is this Monday, January 11th.

This book affirms that the shared hopes of religious progressives from many traditions can create a movement far stronger than fundamentalism. In order to advance positive social change, progressive people need to claim the transforming power of our theological heritage.
