How Career, Parenting, Technology, Food, Politics, and Romance Became Our New Religion and What to Do about It
David Zahl - 2019-04-02
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Seculosity" by David Zahl explores the universal yearning for enoughness and righteousness in today's society. As religion declines, people turn to everyday activities such as eating, parenting, and dating for identity and purpose. However, this constant striving for enoughness is burning us out. Zahl takes a playful, personal, and incisive look at American "performancism" and its mercilessness, challenging the conventional narrative of religious decline. Through his insightful observations, he highlights the grace of God in its countercultural wonder.

If you're tired of being talked down to or want to understand faith in the 21st century, "Unapologetic" will challenge and enlighten you.

Рейтинг Goodreads
This inspiring memoir follows the journey of a lesbian left-wing journalist who unexpectedly finds herself embracing a faith centered around real hunger and nourishment. With compassion and insight, she turns the bread eaten at communion into tons of groceries to be given away to the poorest parts of their city. Through her experiences, she discovers the joys of giving and receiving graciously, the importance of welcoming everyone to the table, and the transformative power of faith. This book is filled with compelling characters and is a powerful reminder of the goodness of humanity.
