Reviews - What do customers think about Holy Adventure: 41 Days of Audacious Living?

Refreshingly Progressive!  Mar 26, 2009
"Adventurous spirituality overcomes the dualism of mind and body, heaven and earth, and life and death. Our bodies and spirits are holy and loved by God, now and forevermore." This thought, from the Week 6 of the "41 days" is a sample of the uplifting thoughts from Dr. Bruce Epperly's book, Holy Adventure. It also reveals one of the most striking qualities of the book: an absence of exclusive doctrinal certainties in favor of an expansive view of human spirituality. How refreshing in a world where the word "Christian" has been seemingly usurped by those with rigid and fearful world views. Holy Adventure is a progressive spiritual approach to the Christian life, with each page opening up a new adventure within the reader. But one doesn't have to be a Christian to gain spiritual beauty from these pages. Readers of all faiths--including those who are spiritual, but not religious--can enjoy the richness of these pages, an adventure that integrates the best spiritual practices from around the world.
A religious progressive responds to Rick Warren  Oct 25, 2008
This book is a great resource for people trying to take their faith deeper. It's like Rick Warren's "Purpose Driven Life," but different in important ways.

Over 41 days, the reader is engaged in a lot of prayer, reflection, bible study, values and talents clarification designed to help the reader discern the direction God may be calling.

Sound familiar? Yes, it is. Rick Warren's "Purpose Driven Life" is the granddaddy of this genre. Epperly's book is very open about being a "response" to Warren.

It's a good response. It comes out of a different theology. Epperly honors a vision of human beings as active partners with God in caring for the world, and says, for example, "God doesn't determine the details of our lives, but supports our creative responses to the challenges of personal and community life."

Warren is more of the "let go and let God" school. If you just get out of God's way, God will use you to do great things.

For a theologian like Epperly, there's a danger in that. It can be misunderstood as saying that regular people don't have to make the world a better place -- or take responsibility for their own lives -- because, hey, God will take care of it. God made things the way they are, so, gee, God must want things just the way they are.

That's not the God of the Bible. And Epperly wants to find a way to help people grow in relationship with God, but also grow in responsibility for themselves and the world because of that relationship.

It's not the right book for an evangelical. But it's a great book if you feel called to a relationship with God that emphasizes personal responsibility as a crucial expression of loyalty to God.

It will make you a better Christian. And if more Christians followed this model, more nonbelievers would respect what Christians are (supposed to be) all about.
