Seeking a new path

by havenheart on Aug 21, 2007

Gulley and Mulholland have taken an enthralling and radical path here, daring to cite their own experiences as conservative pastors in the Quaker faith, as they document their paths from evangelist to pluralist thinkers. In a world where all religion seems to be falling short in its attempt to answer the questions of war and violence and how to end them, these authors take a simple Quaker tennant: "answering that of God in everyone," and expand it to show how our Christian God of Love could not fail to unite everyone on earth. The authors challenge us to see how the division of God into different faiths, sects and beliefs serves only to divide us into right and wrong, good and bad, and prevents meaningful discussion about what we have in common (desire for peace, desire to preserve our world). This is not a new discussion, but the place it comes from may be. As Quaker pastors, the authors use their experience within their churches to demonstrate that God's love is present everywhere. Then they use good scholarship to expand this dialogue outward, to view how God's presence is transforming, if we loose our own bounds on seeing ourselves as more "right" than others in the world. As a member of the Society of Friends who believes strongly in the peace testimony, I felt this book as a breath of fresh air and a support to my own beliefs. I believe it has meaning for many beyond the Religious Society of Friends, as it calls us to see a different way to enter the dialogue with other faiths and other countries. An exciting and challenging read!
