I’m writing a book, an attempt at a primer on progressive Christian faith, a synopsis of my own view on Christian faith, but also as an attempted distillation of what I believe is the core of the movement known colloquially as “exvangelicalism,” or, more positively, “progressive evangelicalism.” As a test run, I’m going to work it out first as blog posts. I would deeply value any and all feedback.
