Beschreibungen

<p><b>Irreconcilable differences drive the division between progressive and conservative Christians—is there a divorce coming?</b><br><br>Much attention has been paid to political polarization in America, but far less to the growing schism between progressive and conservative Christians. In this groundbreaking new book, George Yancey and Ashlee Quosigk offer the provocative contention that progressive and conservative Christianities have diverged so much in their core values that they ought to be thought of as two separate religions. <br><br>The authors draw on both quantitative data and interviews to uncover how progressive and conservative Christians determine with whom they align themselves religiously, and how they distinguish themselves from each other. They find that progressive Christians emphasize political agreement relating to social justice issues as they determine who is part of their in-group, and focus less on theological agreement. Among conservative Christians, on the other hand, the major concern is whether one agrees with them on core theological points. Progressive and conservative Christians thus use entirely different factors in determining their social identity and moral values.<br><br>In a time when religion and politics have never seemed so intertwined, <i>One Faith No Longer</i> offers a timely and compelling reframing of an age-old conflict.</p>
