The popular preacher and public intellectual Lillian Daniel continues to take on the "Spiritual but Not Religious" individuals and shows Christians how to reach them.
Sloppy talk about Christianity has become an acceptable prejudice. TIRED OF APOLOGIZING FOR A CHURCH I DON'T BELONG TO provides humorous yet knowledgeable commentary on the way religion is talked about today. Daniel explains Christian ideas and practices in non-academic, yet non-facile terms. In her signature style, she outlines four types of non-church-goers: no-longer, no-way, never-have, not-yet. With experiential insight from over a decade as a pastor, she explains how churches of all denominations and doctrines can provide them enlightened rigor, reasons for belief, and authentic religious community. No one should have to check their brain at the door of the church, she says, and churches must deal with present-day issues and be intellectually open, inviting people to bring questions, rather than dispensing old, easy answers.
