The Future of Faith

October 17, 2009

I am enjoying Harvey Cox’s newest book, The Future of Faith, and have agreed to participate in a blog book tour. Cox has made insightful observations about religion for decades. Stephen Prothero has pointed to Cox as “the leading trend spotter in American religion.”

Although Cox makes no claim to evangelical faith, his insights are helpful in clarifying just what Christianity was, is, and will be. You may recognize his name from my recent reference to his distinction between belief and faith. I look forward to reviewing the book officially in a future post. For now, here’s some more info on the book.

Harvey Cox new book tour will stop here, but as you can see below it will be making their rounds over the next month until they wrap things up in Montreal at the American Academy of Religion‘s annual meeting, where he will participate on a panel regarding a ‘Big Idea’ for the future of the Church. These ‘Big Ideas’ will be video tapped and shared, so be on the look out for live footage from the last night of the tour.
