Sick Religion or Healthy Faith?
Beliefs and Practices for Healing Christian Communities
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Looking for a quick, easy way to a healthy faith community? Then put this book down and move on. In this volume, Ahlgrim challenges us to think critically, feel deeply, and engage in the hard work that helps us connect with God, each other, and the world, with integrity and wholeness. As a seminary professor, certified interim minister, and fellow struggler on the journey, I will reach for this book time and again.
-- Tracy Hartman, Daniel O. Aleshire Professor of Homiletics and Practical Theology, Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond
"Where two or three are gathered, there's bound to be conflict. Nevertheless, Jesus requires that we gather, as a community, in order to practice the radical politics of his kingdom. In this incredibly accessible book, Ryan Ahlgrim provides us a practical guide for how to put into practice the politics of Jesus so that we can maintain a healthy religious community for ourselves and, perhaps more importantly, for the watching world."
