Growing Toward God: Christianity Revisited
Phyllis Tickle and Sam Keen challenge, provoke, and laugh wholeheartedly in an unscripted conversation on the future of Christianity. This is a good introduction for congregations beginning to consider ways to respond to the postmodern world.
A former professor of philosophy and religion, Sam Keen was a contributing editor to Psychology Today for twenty years before becoming a lecturer and seminar leader. He has written thirteen books and produced the award winning PBS documentary, "Faces of the Enemy."
Contributing Editor in Religion for Publishers Weekly magazine, Phyllis Tickle serves as a Lay Eucharistic Minister and Reader in the Episcopal Church. Her work on religion and spirituality is frequently cited in all major media sources. Among her two dozen books: "My Father's Prayer: A Remembrance," "Re-Discovering the Sacred: Spirituality in America," "God-Talk in America," "The Divine Hours," and her latest, "Prayer is a Place."
