Broken Rainbows: Growing Faith in a Changing World

Portada
Rowman & Littlefield, 1997 - 172 páginas
Broken Rainbows is a book for all those who have questioned or departed from the traditional Christian explanations of Gof and the world because those explanations seem disconnected from what we know of evolution, quantam mechanics, democratic institutions, individual rights, and the sacred present in other religions. Based on personal experiences and reflections on the Christian world into which he was immersed in childhood, McCrossin shares new insights about God, sin, Jesus Christ, and the faithful community that he believes more adequately express the full experience of a Contemporary Christian.
