Christians today wring their hands over the church's declining influence even as they become stuck in defending and protecting its traditions. Is there a way through this dilemma?
Elaine A. Heath has reached back to Paul's letter to the Galatians to chart a new path for the modern church. Though she is among the most innovative thinkers and prophetic voices in Christianity today, Heath found herself identifying with today's traditionalists as she encountered Paul's wisdom, and she came to a stunning realization: Her own vision of God may yet have been too small.
Let Heath be your guide through Paul's letter as she looks for the great tradition behind our traditions. Allow her to teach you how Galatians can inspire you to move with Christ to the margin of society, where God's kingdom flourishes. You too just might find God unbound.
This seven session eCourse includes:
- all essential reading from Elaine's book, God Unbound: Wisdom from Galatians for the Anxious Church.
- Weekly videos (2-5 minutes each) of Elaine introducing each chapter.
- A series of personal reflection questions.
- A place to share comments and thoughts with others who are participating in this eCourse.
Praise for God Unbound:
"Rarely do we find so many critical issues about the future of faith addressed so concisely as in God Unbound. And to think that this is coming from the dean of one of our great schools of theology--how hopeful! Elaine Heath grounds her message in one of the core texts that leveraged the Protestant Reformation, inviting us to move with the spirit into the new Reformation now so clearly unfolding." --Paul Nixon, coauthor, Weird Church: Welcome to the Twenty-First Century.
