“How can you still be a Christian?”
This is the most common question Diana Butler Bass is asked today. It is a question that many people ponder as they wrestle with disappointment and disillusionment in their church and its leadership. But while many Christians have left their churches, they cannot leave their faith behind. In Freeing Jesus (HarperOne), Diana challenges the idea that Jesus can only be understood in static, one-dimensional ways. She encourages readers to “leave the religious wars behind and rediscover Jesus in all his many manifestations, to experience Jesus beyond the narrow confines we have built around him. It renews our hope in faith and worship at a time when we need it most.” These two informal sessions will be a combination of talks, Q&A and participant engagement.
“Diana Butler Bass is one of only a few modern Christian writers who can absolutely blow me away with both spiritual insight and beautiful writing. She is a brilliant scholar and a wonderful storyteller, charming and devout, erudite and deeply human. She speaks for me in Freeing Jesus as in all her books.” -Anne Lamott, author of Almost Everything and Help Thanks Wow
