We asked the editors of Disquiet Time for a brief paragraph about what they think will be helpful/interesting/weird/encouraging about presenting Disquiet Time at a seminary. What they submitted ended up being more lengthy than anticipated, but it was so good, we just thought we’d leave it as it was. Hope to see you at our event in November.

coverA virtual panel discussion in Christianity Today magazine posed a question to three authors whose recent book releases point to their most profound spiritual and ecclesiastical concerns.

(One dubs the Millennials an “Ex-Christian Generation,” another calls ours a “post-Christian world,” and a third writes about what it means to be “Almost Christian.”)

The question posed to these authors by CT:

How can churches reach nominal believers before they become ‘Nones’?

One panelist advocates giving “nominal believers a jolt” by confronting them with “the hard truth of what it means to follow…

BOOK BUZZ: From author Trish Ryan

GrantFalsani_DisquietTime_HC-2-1Trish Ryan posted a lengthy blog today that included a Q & A with DT co-editor Cathleen Falsani and the following incredibly kind words about the book:

 

I recommended it to you here on the blog a few weeks back because I kind of couldn’t wait until the pub date (10/21/14) to write about it. My favorite part of this collection is that while I didn’t agree with everything the different writers say…I didn’t feel like I had to. Do you know what a surprise that is? I kept waiting to feel that defensive mechanism go up inside me, but it didn’t. There was no expectation of uniformity or call for everyone to fall in line. This collection is such an inspiring picture of what real faith, lived with real people, looks and feels and reads like.

Thank you TRISH!

What People Are Saying about DISQUIET TIME

ticklebookpete

“This is a sturdy book, a thoroughly satisfying and totally credible book. Well-conceived and well-executed, it offers honest words about holy things, which means that it is also a brave book. I, for one, am grateful.”

~ Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence and founding religion editor, Publishers Weekly

Disquiet Time takes us down a thrilling, provocative, and often beautiful path that leads to the deepest parts of ourselves, and the deepest parts of Christ. This book is for folks who don’t just want to read the Bible; they want to laugh, wrestle and cry with the Bible. And that’s just the place God wants us to be.”

~ Joshua DuBois, former head of the White House Office of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and author of The President’s Devotional

Disquiet Time is a devotional for humans, a daily reading for the messy, doubt-filled, sometimes irreverent people who love God or hope to some day. Though hinged on some of the Bible’s most deranged narratives [the book] … is strangely comforting, a spiritual hodgepodge that is deep and convicting, hopeful and honest, quirky and wise. For believers, cynics, and misfit souls, Disquiet Time is a welcomed invitation to doubt, laugh, fight, debate, and trust.”

~ Matthew Paul Turner, author of Our Great Big American God and Churched

“Cathleen and Jen are wonderful writers as well as wonderful people and this collection of wonderful essays is, in a word: lovely. You thought I was going to say ‘wonderful,’ didn’t you? I’M AN ENIGMA!!”

~ Pete Holmes, comedian and talk show host
