Excerpt


An increasing number of believers are developing deeper and more critical questions about their Christian faith. While they remain committed to the church, they no longer feel attuned to its messages and at times have doubts about the sustainability of contemporary Christianity. In A Christianity Worth Believing, Doug Pagitt demonstrates how one can embrace such questions, and explore new ways to answer them, while ultimately deepening their faith. Addressing topics such as Jesus, sin, the Bible, humanity, church and the Kingdom of God, Pagitt approaches these topics in a personal and engaging way, offering readers a fresh and innovative new way of thinking about Christianity. Setting aside the worn and tired debates on theological topics, Pagitt offers fresh insight, provocative possibilities, and the hopeful message of Christ presented in a lively and accessible way.

Excerpt


This book isn't about quick-fix methods or bulleted, how-to lists. And its certainly not a dry lecture about a heady theological topic. Instead Church Re-Imagined is about striving, trying and experimenting with the idea that the old ways of approaching spiritual formation may not be the only avenues toward living lives in harmony with God in our day. Inside these pages you'll spend a full week with Solomon's Porch - a holistic, missional, Christian community in Minneapolis - and get a front row seat at their gatherings, meetings, and meals. Along the way, you'll also discover what spiritual formation looks like in a church community that moves beyond education based practices by including worship, physicality, dialogue, hospitality, belief, creativity, and service as means toward spiritual formation rather than mere appendices to it. Church Re-Imagined is ideal for thinkers, pastors, church leaders, and anyone else seeking fresh ways of experiencing life with God.

Excerpt


Doug Pagitt is convinced that our preaching needs to move beyond mere individual "speaching." Thus, in Preaching Re-Imagined he explores an approach to preaching that is shaped by the community, engages the community and calls the community to follow God in the way of Jesus. Doug will challenge you to think about preaching in creative, communal and Christ honoring ways.

Excerpt


It's possible for prayer to become so routine that it's almost meaningless. Head-oriented prayer can focus on getting the words just right, while leaving out the rest of who you are. BodyPrayer helps you become fully engaged in prayer as you connect with God using more than mere words.

By practicing various postures of prayer; many of them identical to those modeled in Scripture; you will open your life more fully to God. Body prayer involves all of who you are as you enter into communion with God, either individually or with other believers.

Join Christians throughout history who used their entire being as a prayer; in expressions of joy, gratitude, and entreaty, as well as worship and devotion to God. This biblically-based guide will help you practice a richer, more meaningful expression of prayer; one that involves your body as well as your soul.
