About the Book

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.” [From the Preface by Dr. David R. Sawyer]

About the Author

Bart L. Brenner and Wayne E. Purintun draw upon thirty-five years of a spiritual journey in which they committed themselves to reflect together on their ministry as pastors and denominational executives. Out of their experience, their engagement with creative thinkers and their continuing conversations, they have begun to ask different questions about foundational matters relating to the journey in faith.
