About-

People of God have for many centuries read devotional works along with holy Scripture, especially during Advent and Lent. Usually these are safe and spiritual, somewhat poetic possibly, and extremely devotional. Here William Stringfellow’s writings are brought to bear on Lent, with the predictable responses of awe, shock, surprise, conviction, identity, integrity, and such. There is no easy spirituality in Stringfellow. He is straightforward, radically biblical, socially aware, and spiritually disquieting. Lent will never be the same.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Our postmodern culture, where deconstructing faith is fashionable, often presents God as anemic and his word as insignificant for daily living. Dr. Mackey invites us on a Lenten journey to encounter a vital and robust God able to breathe new life into weary souls, and to redeem God’s word as relevant and indispensable for daily living. Christian sojourners, yearning for a revitalized portrait of faith, will find Notoriously Active a refreshing surprise.”

—Denise E. Hirschlein, Associate Professor of Psychology, Nyack College
