Product description

Review

"Harvey Cox has been a voice of both reason and faith in our cynical times. Now, he offers ?a fresh vision for the resurrection of a new global Christianity that will restore our faith both in ourselves and the divine."--Deepak Chopra, author of Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment

"A lucid and congenial book . . . [Cox] is not alone, but he is most cogent, in thinking that the content of Christian faith is becoming more like that of the early church . . . A book full of good news."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"This important book has not only helped me understand the past, present, and future of this amazing phenomenon called Christianity ... it has also motivated me to keep working to help make actual the possible future Cox envisions."?--Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christian

"The Future of Faith is insightful, provocative, and inspiring--I even found myself uttering a hearty evangelical "Amen" at many points!"--Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Theological Seminary and author of Calvinism in the Las Vegas Airport

"At this crucial turning point in history, Harvey Cox reminds us of essential religious values and imperatives . . . A timely and prophetic book"--Karen Armstrong, author of A History of God

"With typical brilliance and lively insight, Cox explores questions in a dazzling blend of memoir, church history and theological commentary . . . Cox remains our most thoughtful commentator on the religious scene, and his spirited portrait of our religious landscape challenges us to think in new ways about faith."--Publishers Weekly

"With its overarching themes, Cox's new book can be viewed as the culmination of his life's scholarship."--Boston Globe

"Celebrated religious scholar Cox argues that we are witnessing the dawn of a third epoch in Christian history . . . Cox's work is intriguing, and there is certainly truth in his observations about global Christianity and the rise of Pentecostalism and liberation theology."--Kirkus Reviews

"For the last four decades, Harvey Cox has been the leading trend spotter in American religion."--Stephen Prothero, author of Religious Literacy

"The Future of Faith is a tour de force. As passionate and challenging as his classic, The Secular City, Cox's new book invites the faithful, the skeptical, and the fearful into a spirit-filled vision of Christianity that can renew a hurting world."--Diana Butler Bass, author of A People's History of Christianity

From the Back Cover

The Rise and Fall of Belief and the Coming Age of the Spirit

There is an essential change taking place in what it means to be "religious" today. As religious people shift their focus to ethical guidelines and spiritual disciplines--not doctrine--we are seeing a universal trend away from hierarchical, regional, patriarchal, and institutional religion. Now, legendary Harvard scholar Harvey Cox offers a new interpretation of the history and future of religion, revealing how doctrines and dogma are giving way to new grassroots movements based in community, social justice, and spiritual experience. The Future of Faith is a major statement and a hopeful vision from one of the most revered theologians today.
