Is Christianity relevant for the 21st century? Christianity seems torn between the extremes of fundamenalist absolutism on one hand and progressives who are trying to find a way to appeal to diminishing congregations who are not finding relevance in the traditions so many of us were raised in.

Amos Smith finds answers to these questions by delving into Christianity's past to an era often overlooked in today's Christian traditions. The years between 312 and 454 C.,E. was an era of great enlighenment and understanding. God was at the center of faith and Jesus was seen as the example of how God was at work with humanity.

What did these 'Desert Fathers and Mothers' teach us? Join Amos Smith and me as we discuss his book, Healing the Divide, how Christianity is relevant to our times.
