In this bold call to reclaim ownership of their religion, Rev. Scotty McLennan advocates a Christianity based on the humanity behind Christ's teachings. McLennan explains that, in fact, Jesus was a liberal, that he championed rationality, tolerance, and freedom from religious authority. Today, the press too often characterizes the national debate about religion as a fight between the religious right and the secular left. In the middle - forgotten, maligned - are millions of liberal Christians. Not only does this book seek to give them a voice, but more importantly, it builds solid bridges to all sides of the cultural divide.
