Progressive Christianity features in a new novel
A PCN Britain member has followed in the footsteps of Marcus Borg and written a novel which encapsulates the approach of progressive Christianity.Author, James Quinton, uses a documentary device to pitch himself into a story about the the end of humanity and the final battle between good and evil. Izzy Baker, reviewing the novel in the PCN March Newsletter, describes the plot like this: "Quinton claims he found the manuscript eighteen months ago in his then recently deceased great aunt’s house. What follows is an account written in 1900 by his great, great uncle, the Victorian Time Traveller of the title, to the wife he left behind. The Victorian Time Traveller witnesses a future (the end of the 21st century) where religion is derided and anti-theism is predominant. It’s also where he meets a man in a bar who tells the Time Traveller his own story." A speculative fiction novel combining elements of science fiction/fantasy and pre-apocalyptic dystopia, the book strongly promotes Progressive Christianity, the importance of open thinking, contemporary understanding and embraces the PCN Britain’s Eight Points.
