Summary

"Progressive Christians uniting, based in the greater Los Angeles area, seeks to embody a progressive form of Christianity in statements, conferences, and projects, to encourage local churches and their members to think and act in more progressive ways, and to show the wider community that there is a more authentic form of Christian faith than that projected by the religious right."--BOOK JACKET.
