Rants and Reflections on the Good Book

disquiettimecover

Jennifer Grant and Cathleen Falsani are delighted to announce the imminent launch of Disquiet Time: Rants and Reflections on the Good Book.

On October 21, this weird and wonderful collection will be released, and the co-editors (as well as various other contributors) will be embarking on a speaking tour of Washington, DC; Wheaton and Chicago, IL; and Berkeley, CA. See full schedule and details here.

A recent blog post by Jennifer Grant describes the potential for ministers and seminarians to engage the material in the book. 

Grant writes,

"If ministers or theology students find themselves concerned about 'reaching Millennials' or about the prevalence of people who describe themselves as a 'none,' they will know that, as this recent discussion underscores, 'This distaste for polarization is a key feature of the millennials that leads you to call them the mediating generation.'"

Disquiet Time is a book that illuminates the experience of all sorts of people of faith. It points to God’s grace and how big (and how incomplete) are our stories. [Read more]
