Along The Thomasine Path is a groundbreaking collection of rituals, readings, and resources for spiritual seekers who have turned their backs on Christianity because of those on the religious right who have hijacked the teachings of Jesus and tried to force their divisive agenda upon every aspect of American life. With clarity and insight, author Donald Bruce Stouder finally welcomes back the sermon as a powerful literary form, and uses it to fashion a faith that makes sense in modern times. He has also developed rituals that can be used by individuals or groups to deepen their spirituality as they discover new ways to build faith and community.

Describing the faith of liberal, progressive Christians, Along The Thomasine Path introduces us to The Thomas Christians, a small community of clergy and lay people who honor the teachings of Jesus found in The Gospel of Thomas, and who believe in a faith that is radically inclusive and compassionate. Along The Thomasine Path offers readers a refreshing vision of a Christian faith that welcomes all people, and a powerful criticism of the institutional religious right.
