Burning Religion (Phil Wyman Consignment)by Wicked Good Books $ 15.00
Burning Religion is a multi-genre book covering elements of philosophy, theology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, autobiography, poetry, and Carnivalesque tall tales in a thesis suggesting that making peace between disparate worldviews is not possible in any permanent manner through typical moderate or third-way approaches. So-called "radical" approaches are not radical enough. Finding lasting peace requires something wild. Burning Religion is the first of a series suggesting that the wildness of the Carnival just might hold a key to peacemaking. Phil Wyman a pastor, writer, editor, musician, songwriter, poet, wannabe philosopher-artist, and creator of interactive “blank canvas social art,” and is looking for people to join him in a revolution of relationship building across polarized and clashing communities. Phil’s pioneering work in developing peaceful relationships between Christians and Neo-Pagans appeared the Front Page of the Wall Street Journal in 2006, in a story highlighting institutional obstructions to lovingly embracing the radical “Other.” This book is an adventurous journey into the intellectual, emotional and physical places where uncommon friends are made and true listening begins.
