Practicing Our Faith: A Way of Life for a Searching People
Date: July 2020
Duration: 8 hours 52 minutes
Dorothy Bass' Practicing Our Faith book grew out of the Lilly Endowment funded Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People of Faith's work in exploring what it means not just to believe but to act upon one's faith. Over the past 11 years, it basically established an entirely new way of thinking about everyday practices such as hospitality, forgiveness, and keeping Sabbath that has been highly influential across a wide range of Christian laypeople, leaders, denominations, and study groups. In this second edition, Dorothy incorporates a reader/study guide into the back of the book, revises the concluding chapter, and adds an afterword on her meditations on the practices discussed in the book and how they relate to and intersect with other basic Christian practices (prayer, worship, and Bible study).
