Theology From Exile

Posted in Book Review with tags on June 15, 2014 by seguewm

Sea Raven’s, “THEOLOGY FROM EXILE: Commentary on the Revised Common Lectionary for an Emerging Christianity – The Year of Luke” is a refreshing masterpiece of genuinely mindful commentary. The lectionary is finally a delight to read. Sunday readings provoke a week long dialogue relevant to life in the 21st century. Don’t expect a rehashing of the same old religiously and politically ‘safe’ pablum.

The ’emerging’ Christian will find the format familiar, while the content will surpass expectations. The launch originates in Luke, yet often explores texts lifted from out of both testaments. If you are hesitant to question the status quo, don’t waste a moment with this volume. It is not for the faint of heart, but is ‘just what the doctor ordered’ for those with a progressive bent. Whether utilized for individual devotions or to guide a weekly group discussion, it may be useful to journal your reflections along the way.
