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.

"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, Dueholms sacred signposts are the signs of our time."

"With artfully composed sentences and intriguing theological insight, Benjamin Dueholms reflections on Christian practices will surely speak to the lifelong faithful, to Christianitys cultured despisers, and to everyone in between. This book should earn Dueholm a wide hearing. His voicemeasured, funny, and wiseis needed now more than ever."
"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. . . . Dueholms pensive reflection on biblical virtues will be welcomed by Christians interested in simple theology."
