(Must business people leave their Christian values at chur...)
Must business people leave their Christian values at church? While many business people have a strong and growing interest in the relationship between work and spirit, few find the church to be a resource in their explorations. How can businesspeople live out their faith at work? And how can the church respond more effectively to business people s needs? Church on Sunday, Work on Monday takes the "spirituality at work" movement to the next level, offering practical advice on how businesspeople can find and develop better resources within Christian communities. Nash and McLennan assess the distance between pew and pulpit, articulate how the church is turning off business and professional people, and make concrete recommendations on how church leaders and lay business people can work together in partnership to bridge the gap. They also offer practical help for business people who wish to nurture the soul, create harmony, connect with the community, and perform ethically on the job.

For the millions of people who identify as liberal Christians. In McLennan's bold call to reclaim ownership of Christianity, he advocates a sense of religion based not on doctrinal readings of scripture but on the humanity behind Christ's teachings. He addresses such topics as intelligent design, abortion, same sex marriage, war. torture and much, much more. As he says in the Preface, "We liberal Christians know in our hearts that there is much more to life than seems to meet the rational eye of atheists; yet we find it hard to support supernatural claims about religion that fly in the face of scientific evidence."

Christ for Unitarian Universalists is an engaging and thoughtful inquiry into Christianity for Unitarian Universalists and other spiritual seekers - including skeptics, non-religious people, liberal Christians, and those who consider themselves "spiritual but not religious." This book addresses frank questions with integrity and intellectual honesty yet also presents a sincere and genuine sense of love as embodied in Jesus that is so heartfelt, so unconditional, and so revolutionary that it will take your breath away.
