Future of Faith in America: Progressive Christianity

Progressive Christianity—drawing together mainline Protestants, emergent Christians, and post-evangelicals—gathers its strength from a new vision of the world, one defined by justice and wholeness. The challenges, however, are many: cultural, theological, environmental, and institutional.

Yet there is reason for hope, and the energy of a common goal unites a wide diversity of Christian believers. These essays address both the unity of faith and that diversity, confronting head-on some of the obstacles and opportunities ahead.
