Tom Krattenmaker (Confessions of a Secular Jesus Follower: Finding Answers in Jesus for Those Who Don’t Believe), Katherine Ozment (Grace Without God), and Kristin Swenson (God of Earth: Discovering a Radically Ecological Christianity) share their search for meaningful answers to issues of our day.

Why should you attend?

In Confessions of a Secular Jesus Follower, Krattenmaker offers readers surprising reflections on the benefits of modeling one’s life based on Jesus’s ministry and teachings. While the book purports to speak to non-believers, don’t be fooled. A committed Christian will glean as much from this book as an avowed atheist.” —Jonathan Merritt, author of Jesus is Better Than You Imagined and contributing writer for The Atlantic

“An astute journalist, Ozment deftly explores whether meaningful ritual can offer an adequate substitute for organized religion. Her candor, open-mindedness, and reflection provide solace to the reader struggling with similar issues in their own lives, respectfully honoring the ghost of religion rather than writing it off.” —The Humanist

“Seeker and visionary biblical scholar, Kristin Swenson blows past petrified Christian traditions to shine light on a profoundly radical new way to experience God” —Stephanie Pearson, contributing editor, Outside magazine.
