Praise and Reviews
More than anything I have read in many years, Saving Paradise presents the issues which I must ponder as I continue to reflect upon the nature of the Christian faith, the character of Christian worship, and Christian life in the world.
—Keith Watkins (Read the full review)
This powerful, unprecedented, and compelling book brings real Christianity out of the shadows. It lights up the religious roots of American society at a time when progressives need to challenge conservative politicians who use Christianity as a false prop for their ideology.
—George Lakoff, author of Don’t Think of an Elephant!
How did Christianity become a religion of finitude and guilt rather than one of promise and celebration? Brock and Parker ran with the evidence, showing us the importance of art, ritual, devotional practices, and liturgical space for early Christians. This tangible past transformed their research and led them to see that paradise in this world lies at the heart of Christianity
—Diane Apostolos-Cappadona, author of Dictionary of Christian Art
