Descrizione

"The R-Rated Theologian" is an anthology of unabashed Progressive Christian essays by Arik Bjorn, frequent contributor to Patheos and Forward Progressives.

From same-sex marriage to Heaven & Hell to the biblical canon itself, the author tackles all of the sacred cows of Christian theology—including the dreaded Mark of the Beast, 666. (Or is it 616?) While dodging Adam’s snake and Revelation’s horny beast, Bjorn discovers a commonsense Progressive Christianity, where it’s perfectly acceptable to stand beneath a Cloud of Unknowing without an umbrella, yet where age-old standards like Bible chapter and verse notations are found wanting.

As author and creator of the website Christian Evolution, Eric Alexander, states in his introduction: "Arik’s ideas are not so extreme as to disrespect or defile the Christian tradition, but they will push you to think in a considerate and educated way. He is one of today’s true progressive leaders—pushing the envelope but not quite throwing it into the shredder."
