Description

Practicing Our Faith offers help to Christians who are asking how our faith can help us discern what we might do and who we might become.

Practices are shared activities that address fundamental needs of humankind and creation and that, woven together, form a way of life. The twelve practices explored in this book are practices that human beings simply cannot do without, particularly at this time in history.

This book will stimulate your imagination, encourage you to reflect, and invite you to notice and live the practices of faith.

Here is a way to live the abundant life that is good news for our neighbors, sweet rest for our souls, and hope for a church too long fragmented by division.

Practicing Our Faith is more than a book; it outlines a movement—God’s movement—that is both as old as Abraham and as new as today’s emerging Christianity. Here is a way to live the abundant life that is good news for our neighbors, sweet rest for our souls, and hope for a church too long fragmented by division. Like the preachers of the last great awakening, I want to shout, ‘Get on board!’

Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove | new monastic, author, and speaker

Practicing Our Faith strikes me as a book as wise as grandparents—a good guide to living within our families and communities with integrity and generosity.

Deceptively simple and down-to-earth, these authors provide potent surprises. Dorothy Bass’s observations that ‘slaves cannot take a day off but free people can’ startled me into a new comprehension of the workaholism that permeates American culture. Practicing Our Faith strikes me as a book as wise as grandparents—a good guide to living within our families and communities with integrity and generosity.

Practicing Our Faith includes some of the most insightful Christian voices of our time

Practicing Our Faith is a book written by a remarkable community of people—remarkable not only because it includes some of the most insightful Christian voices of our time but because its members prayed and talked and worked together to create this volume, modeling the way the church is meant to do its work. Practicing Our Faith is a book that should be widely read, and more: it should be put into action.

Parker Palmer | author of "A Hidden Wholeness", "Let Your Life Speak", and "The Courage to Teach"
