Confronting a Controlling God
Christian Humanism and the Moral Imagination
Imprint: Cascade Books
Praise for earlier volumes in the Confronting Fundamentalism Series
"Catherine Wallace is a force of nature. She is brilliant, persuasive, compassionate, and wise. Her new book in the Confronting Fundamentalism series addresses the issue of gay marriage. She does so with such clarity, directness, and zest that it's hard to imagine anyone reading this book without being challenged to understand LGBTQ identity--and marriage--afresh and anew."
--Brian D. McLaren, author/speaker/activist (brianmclaren.net)
"Proclaiming Christianity that can cooperate with other religions and is understood as living the way of Jesus rather than as adherence to a theory about Jesus provides a welcome antidote to the violent God emulated by adherents of the contemporary form of Christendom, which Wallace repudiates so forcefully."
--J. Denny Weaver, author of The Nonviolent God
"This is a sensitive and well-thought-out book that explores the relationships between literature, religion, physiology, morality, prayer, science, metaphor, truth and art. If that sounds like a handful, it is. But Catherine M. Wallace handles these subjects with grace and clarity in this excellent book."
