"Theology is the place and story you think of when you ask yourself about the meaning of your life, of the world, and the possibility of God," Serene Jones suggests in this thoughtful look at worship in the 21st century. From her Oklahoma roots to her leadership of New York's Union Theological Seminary, Jones's story illuminates the spiritual fault lines of this age—and points beyond them. With a voice that is at once practical and poetic, Jones makes complex teachings around forgiveness, justice, sin, and grace understandable and applicable for modern people. Highlighting the wisdom of great theological voices—Soren Kierkegaard, Reinhold Niebuhr, John Calvin, James Baldwin, Saint Teresa of Avila—Jones brings them to life with an intimacy and vividness that illumines our lives and our culture now.
