Burke’s Book Store Book Signing and Discussion with John McQuiston
Burke’s Book Store will host a book signing and discussion with John McQuiston, author of Christianity Without Superstition: Meaning, Metaphor, and Mystery (Morehouse Publishing, $12.00 paperback) on Thursday, November 29th, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. The discussion will begin at 6:00 p.m.
Is belief in the Nicene and Apostles Creeds required to be a Christian Does science support or diminish belief in the divine How does one live Jesus’ way in the world? A careful study of Jesus shows that his intended legacy for us was not a set of propositional beliefs, but a way for being in the world, a way that opens us to the extraordinary opportunity of the present, a way that can convert our hurried, anxious lives into something luminous. Our obsession with “what to believe” misses the primary message of the Bible, says McQuiston, who illustrates that the paramount message of Jesus, and even the Hebrew Scriptures, is not about what stories to believe, but how to live.
John McQuiston is an attorney in Memphis and an active layman in the Episcopal Church. He is the author of Always We Begin Again: The Benedictine Way of Living, A Prayer Book for the 21st Century, and Finding Time for the Timeless: Spirituality in the Workweek.
