Congratulations, Roger! What an accomplishment. I am looking forward to reading the book; I'm sure it makes valuable contributions to the conversation about the role of an ancient faith in the post-modern world.

i have always been a little insecure about my faith. mainly due to the fact that i have not really seen eye to eye with some of the conservative values i was presented with growing up, and this had made me wander away from Christianity as a whole and become strictly a follower of Jesus; however, your book was a cool breeze on a hot day... it was sweet music to my ear... it made me realize that i wasn't as crazy as i had been told i had been. i have found progressive Christianity to be my fit.
bottom line-- this book was encouraging, and i will be suggesting this book to all i come in contact with :D

I'm currently looking for good reading material to share with a group of folks looking beyond the traditional church for some kind of faith community rooted in grace. Sounds like we should engage in conversation around your book. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Read about it on fb in a post from my friend Janice Heidelberger

Looking forward to reading your book. It sounds like you are writing about my own experiences with the formal Christian beaurocracy. I have found Christ more in the streets than in Gods house.Cant wait to read "Kissing Fish."

Kissing Fish is a great book from cover to cover. Roger Wolsey addresses difference and unity between conservative and progressive Christians, which often originate in subtle semantic disagreements, in a fun and very accessible way. As an â??unchurched,â? but open- minded and spiritually curious person, the disparities between different â??brandsâ? of Christians have often been overwhelming. Without having understood or even been aware of these wildly differing approaches to the Bible and Christianity, encounters Iâ??ve had with some conservatives have been jarring, even traumatic. This book presents these issues upfront and gives us the nitty-gritty, and the theologically in depth background of the differing Conservative and Progressive approaches. Kissing Fish is a very enriching and healing read.
