Disquiet Time: Rants and Reflections on the Good Book by the Skeptical, the Faithful, and a Few Scoundrels

http://disquiettime.com/

Editors Jennifer Grant and Cathleen Falsani take on the Good Book and all of its "not-so-precious moments" which include murder, sex, and slavery. Instead of ignoring the difficult (yet entertaining) passages of the Bible, the editors, along with a host of contributors -including Brian McLaren, Ian Morgan Cron, and Susan Issacswelcome the disourse with Disquiet Time: Rants and Reflections on the Good Book by the Skeptical, the Faithful, and a Few Scoundrels. 

Insights include confronting questions like:

·         How do we come to grips with the Bible's troubling (or seemingly troubling) passages about the role of women?

·         What the heck is the book of Revelation really about? (The answer is surprising).

·         Why did the artist of the oldest known picture of Jesus intentionally paint him with a wonky eye—and what does this strange choice tell us about the beauty of imperfection?

This collection of “true confessions,” compelling stories, and deep biblical insights were written for people who aren't afraid to dig deep spiritually, ask hard questions, and have some fun along the way.  Falsani and Grant assert, “When it comes to the greatest concerns, biggest questions, and gravest doubts about the Bible, you have the right and freedom to voice them. God can take it. Really. We promise.”

You can purchase the book from any of the following distributors listed here.
