Being a Progressive Christian

Is Not for Dummies, Nor for Know-It-Alls

An Evolution of Faith

Chuck Queen explores the following themes from a distinctly progressive Christian viewpoint: Scripture, faith, Christianity, salvation, discipleship, and the Beatitudes. Each chapter consists of seven reflections; each reflection is followed by questions that probe deeper into the topic and facilitate group discussion. As an introduction to progressive Christianity, the author wrote with the church in mind, providing a good resource for church discipleship and study groups. For example, chapter 1 includes the following topics: What the Bible Says Is Not Necessarily What God Says The Bible Is Not an Answer Book Reading Scripture Transformatively Hearing the Divine Voice How Jesus Read His Bible Experience Generally Trumps Tradition Honoring Sacred Texts Each reflection is designed to stir the reader’s theological imagination, spark critical thinking, and nurture Christian faith and spirituality. The articles weave together personal experiences and vignettes from literature and film, with creative biblical interpretation and theological exposition. Most of all, they are intended to ignite new questions that will inspire the reader to explore, think, and embrace the mystery of the Christian spiritual path. Chuck Queen is a minister, teacher, author, and blogger at He welcomes conversation at
