He who loves his dream of a community more than the Christian community itself becomes a destroyer of the latter, even though his personal intentions may be ever so honest and earnest and sacrificial.This is something for me to chew on quite a bit. Quite a bit.

During the next month, in sporadic fits and dashes, I'll be blogging through and about Harvey Cox's new The Future of Faith in conjunction with TransformingTheology.org. I've posted an introduction to the blog symposium/book tour below, and I'm looking forward to the conversation that will develop. Having worked my way all the way through the first half of the the first chapter of Cox's book, I can already tell this should be interesting. Check out some of the other theo-bloggers as they share their reflections, and be sure to check out TransformingTheology.org and HomebrewedChristianity.com for more details about the tour.
Philip Clayton and Harvey Cox both have new books out and they are taking them out on tour. One of the blog tour stops will be here, but as you can see below they will be making their rounds over the next month until they wrap things up in Montreal at the American Academy of Religion's annual meeting. There they will be joined by an illustrious panel including Eric Gregory, Bruce Sanguin, Serene Jones, Frank Tupper, and Andrew Sung Park to share a 'Big Idea' for the future of the Church. These 'Big Ideas' will be video tapped and shared, so be on the look out for live footage from the last night of the tour.
Philip's new book is Transforming Christian Theology for Church & Society and Harvey's is The Future of Faith. Both are worth checking out at one of the many tour stops. If you can't wait you can listen to them interview each other. Enjoy the blogging!
