Inclusive Christianity: A Progressive Look at Faith
Inclusive Christianity: A Progressive Look at Faith

 

Long involved in ministry, Scott Thornton points out that Jesus was inclusive, forgiving and compassionate. Unfortunate many in the Christian community have distorted Jesus' message, preaching rather a faith that is divisive, judgmental and intolerant. Parameters are set that define people as worthy or unworthy, saved or unsaved. In bringing God's radical grace and love to the world, Jesus rebelled against religious or social conventions that judged people as "acceptable" or "unacceptable". Inclusive Christianity reclaims the authentic voice of Jesus, unclouded by prejudices placed on him by others. This compelling and progressive look at faith embraces a life modeled and taught by Jesusa path that will transform you into the person God intended. 189 pp. 

This excellent book deserves a broad reading! Unless we bring R. Scott Thornton's kind of faith-filled intelligent response to our Scriptures and practice, I see little ability for Christianity to heal, transform or unite our world. With this kind of wisdom, which is merely Jesus' wisdom, we can do just that! Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, NM

What a perfect gift for a new Christian. We used to call such books “primers” – they were handbooks for a journey about to be undertaken, first groundings in a new area of experience, a self-help manual to take on a pilgrimage through life. Scott Thornton’s book is so practical and humane. He touches on the grandest and noblest themes of Christian faith without ever losing the common touch. He is a doctor and, when I’d put his book down, I (a long-in-the-tooth Christian) felt that he knew me inside out. I wish he were my physician as well as my theological companion! Reverend Leslie Griffiths, Wesley’s Chapel, London, England.

R. SCOTT THORNTON, MD is the director of the Sacred Grounds Resource Center at Gloria Dei Church in Huntington Valley, PA. He has served as an educator at Gloria Dei for the past 20 years and also directs the Values Through Sports ministry working with inner-city, at-risk youth in Philadelphia.
