"I am a chaplain at a retirement community of approximately 500 residents, ages 62-103. We are using Living the Questions2 in our Spiritual Growth Program and our residents are loving it. It is challenging, eye opening and soul opening! One resident told me "This study is enriching my life, like never before!" Of course there are those who cry "heresy!" but they still come and share their opinions--wonderful discussion tool! Thanks, for all your work on this project!"

"We have a group of about 18 from various backgrounds (including a retired minister, retired chemist, architect, teachers, and cattle ranchers) some traveling up to 75 miles to get to our meetings. We all live "in the sticks" and feel isolated. We know how different we are from most people and feel the isolation when we are in our own congregations. But we have each other and that helps. Your resources have made our cohesion, study and fellowship possible because of the wonderful material you provide. We laugh when we say, again, and over and over, "That was one of the best we have ever had" and we mean it... You have allowed us to learn that we aren't nuts. We have all grown up thinking differently from those around us, knowing we wanted to do our best to be caring Christians but knowing that much of what we learned was just not making good sense to us. That is no longer the case. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
"I've seen no tool that matches LTQ2 for in-depth discussion 1) demonstrating how "progressive theology" takes scripture and tradition seriously without making idols of either; 2) pulling together in one curriculum resource authors, teachers, preachers and story tellers – each one an exponent of one the various progressive theologies – liberation, process, experiential, existential, Feminist, Hispanic, Asian, African; 3) dignifying lay people as being intelligent and capable of handling the biblical and theological truths and tools being taught in every responsible seminary.
Our folks love LTQ2 and can't wait to start the next series."

"This is the very best study we have ever done at our church."
"We have had several students comment that they have waited 50 years for something like this since they had felt like heretics when they went to church. It has opened the eyes of many in our church. Thanks."
St. Marks UMC,
"This is the most greatly appreciated video series I could have imagined someone could've created at this time. I've been teaching Borg and Spong for years - but to have this series with their colleagues as well dealing with the core topics - profound! and life-changing! I can imagine - you know the looks on people's faces after some of the stories and the tears that flow! I am so thankful to have the privilege of walking with people through the "classes" and witnessing how they very eagerly choose to go deeper in their faith and want others to experience it as well."
