How to Decide If You Should Read Diana Butler Bass’ New Book

The latest book from my fellow Patheos blogger Diana Butler Bass arrived on my doorstep last night. I’ve enjoyed her previous books, and am looking forward to this most recent offering in particular after hearing her lecture a few months ago on some of the book’s main themes.

In celebration of yesterday’s publication date, I’m posting the three links to the blog posts I wrote about those lectures. You may find these posts helpful in discerning if you want to read the whole book:

Reclaiming Christian Experience

Faith: From Convention to Experience

Great Awakening: Opening Our Eyes:Who We Are, What We Can Do, and How Everything Can Change

My guess is that many of you will find that these lecture notes pique your curiosity to read the whole book: Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening.

If you read some or all of the lecture highlights or the book itself, I welcome your feedback in the comments section.
