September 2010 Newsletter

Philip Sudworth challenges progressive Christians to engage with the unchurched and not to waste time trying to breach the Maginot line of traditional church teaching. He wants a change of agenda from doctrinal wrangling to acts of love; opportunities to share our faith should be earned through actions and attitudes. Tim Hinds appreciates Walter Wink's latest take on Jesus as a social revolutionary, and there are reports on this year’s St Deiniol’s PCN residential and PCN’s stall at Greenbelt. Chris Avis reviews theologian, Marcus Borg’s first attempt as a novelist and Hugh Dawes sounds a warning that the historical Jesus may be a reflection of our own liberal leanings and we should not ignore the lessons of Jesus approach to death.
