Club Modernity for Reluctant Christians
Leonard Swidler rigorously pursues the questions raised within the context of freedom, critical-thinking, historical sensibility, and pluralism in/dialogue with the world—ultimately leading to an inner encounter with the Transcendent/Immanent.
People who live in the mental world of Modernity cherish Freedom at the core of being human and Critical-Thinking as the arbiter of what to affirm—or not. History-Evolution is seen as the heart of human life, society, and all reality, and burgeoning numbers become aware of cultural/religious Pluralism – leading to: Dialogue, indeed, Deep-Dialogue/Critical-Thinking with those who perceive the world differently from us. In that Deep-Dialogue/Critical-Thinking all seek the Ultimate Meaning of life, and how to live it – together!
Club Modernity for Reluctant Christians are reflections on the Ultimate Meaning of life that begin not From Above, but From Below, with our human experiences. This book will resonate with Christians, or “reluctant Christians,” who are having difficulty reconciling these core characteristics of Modernity with their religious faith.
