Recommended reading: God is Near: Trusting our Faith

Michael Morwood, author of Tomorrow’s Catholic and Is Jesus God? speaks to progressive Christians in a voice that is easy to understand, that resonates with their experiences and offers hope and encouragement to critical thinkers.

Michael calls on the reader to ask themselves some serious questions about how their faith or thinking about faith was shaped. How did the reader get to their current world view? The key question is: How is it that our Christian faith, which should be a privilege for us and a source of great peace and encouragement, is experienced by many Christians as a burden, as something restrictive, and, as such, is rejected?

This book can be used for personal or group study. It is structured in a way that the reader can interrogate the issues and question oneself along the way. Each chapter has a useful summary.

Chapter Topics:

  1. The God who is near to us
  2. Jesus: Revealer of the nearness of God
  3. The Eucharist: How close really is!
  4. The Church: called to be witness of God’s presence
  5. Prayer: Deepening our awareness of God’s nearness.
