Stories the Religious Left Must Tell Itself

Monday, November 1, 2010

This is a review of the book: Changing the Script: An Authentically Faithful and Authentically Progressive Political Theology for the 21st Century, written by Daniel Schultz. In it, Schultz calls for a greater understanding of the areas where we agree, and making our voices more audible where progressive sentiments are often relegated to less visible regions of society. The sentiment is that we can, if we are willing to try, overcome the negative sentiments of the religious right and its corresponding fundamentalism, thereby creating a world where justice and compassion takes center stage. 

I am definitely going to give this book a read. Schultz does an excellent job of reviewing it.
