This book came into being about two o'clock in the morning on the day after the 2004 presidential election. It arose out of the stunned realization that the historic tradition of progressive Christian thought and action had virtually disappeared from our public discourse.

Progressive Christianity, writes theology professor Delwin Brown, is a family of perspectives that is united in opposing right-wing religion but also desires to go beyond "liberal" and "conservative" labels.

Delwin Brown is Dean Emeritus of the Pacific School of Religion and formerly the Harvey H. Potthoff Professor of Christian Theology at Iliff School of Theology. The author of many books and articles, he is a lay member of the United Methodist Church and resides in Oakland, California.

"With his points for reflection a the end of each chapter and his easily accessible writing style, this book appears to be idea as an introductory guide, particularly for use in small groups."— Anglican Theological Review
