From August 5 – September 9 in our Community Hour, Paul Barnes former Senior Pastor of the 3600 member Grace Chapel will be joining us for a study of his new book, The Radical Center: Understanding the New Christian ReFormation. The church of Jesus Christ is going through a season of profound change. Many Americans view Christians with hostility, resentment and disdain feeling that the church is anti-homosexual, judgmental, hypocritical, old fashioned, too political, out of touch with reality, insensitive to the needs of people, and boring. A new ReFormation is underway and with it, fundamental systemic changes in how our faith will be practiced and understood by future generations. Some of the topics explored will be: understanding how and why Fundamentalism, Evangelicalism and the Charismatic movement developed and why they are leaving such a bad taste in the mouths of many non-churched Americans; looking at how the Bible will be understood in the new ReFormation—a view which will take the Bible seriously and authoritatively but not literally; exploring the issue of whether God will really send billions of people to hell just because they haven't believed in Jesus Christ as their personal savior, and how genuine community fits in to our life of faith. There will be a lot of discussion around some very challenging ideas!
