Strength for the Journey
A Pilgrimage of Faith in Community
By (author) Diana Butler Bass
Strength for the Journey by Diana Butler Bass
Book DescriptionIn Strength for the Journey, Diana Butler Bass illustrates the dynamic strength and persistence of mainline Protestantism. While many baby boomers left the church, only to come back later in life, Bass was a "stayer" who witnessed the struggles and changes and found much there that was meaningful. Offering thought-provoking portraits of eight parishes she attended over two decades, she explores the major issues that have confronted mainline denominations, congregations, and parishioners during those years- from debates over women clergy to conflicts about diversity and community to scrimmages between tradition and innovation.
