In Stirring Waters, Brenner and Purintun tackle a host of questions surrounding the traditional understandings of Christian beliefs and present a variety of perspectives on the key topics of Bible, God, Yeshua, spirit, and more. They go beyond the “why” to asking, “so what.”
Through questions and discussion starters, Stirring Waters offers a fresh way of making sense of faith and church. It wrestles with the ambiguities, uncertainties, and risks of this age and discusses the possibilities the authors have discovered for making sense of life and death. It delves into a conversation about faith and understanding of those mysteries Christians often associate with God and the religious life.
I can’t tell you what kind of book this is—theology, spiritual autobiography, memoir, practical guide. It is all of these and none of these. Probably, it is a category that has not been invented until this moment. I can tell you that this book did for me today what Marcus Borg and Dom Crosson did for me at the end of the last century.”
