Praise for Abundant Lives

"One of the best introductions to progressive Christian living I have ever seen."
—Brian D. McLaren, author of Do I Stay Christian?
"A dazzling yet practical life ethic... This slim volume punches way above its weight."
—Marvin M. Ellison, author of Making Love Just

—Dwight J. Friesen, author of 2020s Foresight

What is the purpose of freedom?

We can debate freedom, rights, and justice . . . but what is the purpose of such debates if they do not tangibly contribute to human flourishing? Abundant Lives: A Progressive Christian Ethic of Flourishing invites our engagement in shared well-being, based on Jesus' commandments to love God, our neighbors, ourselves, and our enemies.

Through Abundant Lives, Amanda Udis-Kessler provokes rich conversation so that we might understand—and enact—the Kindom of God as a realm of human and planetary flourishing.
