Laurie Beth will share with author and blogger, Christian Piatt this week as he releases his #PostChristian book and begins a book tour to promote his message and desire to make a difference in the Church and in life.

As thousands walk away from the church, everyone is wondering: will faith survive the 21st century? Some see the end of morality, others a fitting demise to an oppressive institution. What is clear—is that Christianity as we know it is coming to an end.  Fearless and provocative, postChristian offers a roadmap to the future of faith, beginning with an unflinching examination of the church today. Piatt examines the “seven scandals of Christianity”: pride, certainty, lust, greed, judgment, fear, and envy. Piatt writes that these vices have made Christianity “responsible for, or at least complicit in, some of the worst atrocities in history.” But he doesn’t advocate abandoning religion altogether, as he equally examines Christianity’s seven virtues—humility, faith, love, charity, mercy, courage, and justice.

Bold and insightful, postChristian dares Christians to break out of the box and invites outsiders into the fold as together they revolutionize faith for a postmodern world.

CHRISTIAN PIATT is an author, editor, speaker, musician and spoken word artist. Piatt has been featured on NPR's Morning EditionThe Washington PostHuffington Post, and Sojourners
