Product Description

In our increasingly secular world, what good are the church’s sacred practices, and why do they even matter anymore? With insight, wit, and unsparing honesty, Benjamin Dueholm in this book explores the crucial place and power of Christian practices in ordinary, everyday life. Drawing on modern-day realities and ancient roots, firsthand experience and centuries of history, pop culture and high theology, Dueholm offers a visionary account of the critical, radical, life-affirming role that seven "sacred signposts" play in today’s post-Christian world.

Editorial Reviews

Kaya Oakes
— author of Radical Reinvention: An Unlikely Return to the Catholic Church
"Benjamin Dueholm elegantly and thoughtfully moves us through a Christianity of resistance to our own torpor and into a Christianity of embodiment. Bold and necessary, Dueholm’s sacred signposts are the signs of our time."

Katherine Willis Pershey
— author of Very Married: Field Notes on Love and Fidelity
"Dueholm is more than a writer of breathtakingly beautiful prose, more than a wunderkind possessed of a rare—yet never rarified—theological genius. In Sacred Signposts he is the consummate pastor, interpreting text and context with humility and empathy."

Bromleigh McCleneghan
— author of Good Christian Sex: Why Chastity Isn’t the Only Option—and Other Things the Bible Says about Sex
"With artfully composed sentences and intriguing theological insight, Benjamin Dueholm’s reflections on Christian practices will surely speak to the lifelong faithful, to Christianity’s cultured despisers, and to everyone in between. This book should earn Dueholm a wide hearing. His voice—measured, funny, and wise—is needed now more than ever."

Publishers Weekly
"Instructive. . . . Addressing a post-Christian world and an America that is experiencing a 'significant, ongoing decline in formal religious participation,' Dueholm implores readers to consider seven Christian practices: word, water, meal, forgiveness, ministry, prayer, and cross. He abandons jargon in favor of language that makes religious concepts easy to understand. . . . Dueholm’s pensive reflection on biblical virtues will be welcomed by Christians interested in simple theology."
Amy Ziettlow
— coauthor of Homeward Bound: Modern Families, Elder Care, and Loss
"Sacred Signposts is both vinegar and honey to the life of faith—sharply clarifying and deeply fortifying. Benjamin Dueholm writes with the mind of a theologian, the heart of a pastor, and the courage of a prophet—a trustworthy guide to renewed engagement with the church’s holy possessions."

Dorothy Fortenberry
— playwright, screenwriter for The Handmaid’s Tale
"A warm and bracing look at why we Christians do the things we do and why they might matter. By focusing on the ordinary habits of the church, Sacred Signposts guides us to understand how absurd and profound they—and we—can be."
