Progressive Christianity is not new. It has been around for two hundred years or more. But the anger and disappointment of those who have encountered it only recently is palpable: “Why weren’t we told?” This international collection of cameos and articles on the themes and issues addressed by progressive Christianity is a response to that cry. Contributors include Gary Bouma, Jim Burklo, John Dominic Crossan, Paul Alan Laughlin, Nigel Leaves, Margaret Mayman, Lorraine Parkinson, James Veitch, and Val Webb, to name just a few.
