Pastor and theologian Bruce Epperly will speak and sign copies of his newest book, “Holy Adventure: Forty-one Days of Audacious Living,” 4 p.m. Oct. 14 at Lancaster Theological Seminary‘s Dietz Refectory.
Epperly has described his book as a “progressive and mainstream Christian alternative” to Rick Warren’s “The Purpose Driven Life,” which has sold 70 million copies.
Like “Purpose Driven,” Epperly’s book offers readers a 40-day personal, spiritual journey (actually, Epperly adds a day to make it 41), incorporating theological reflection, spiritual affirmations, imaginative prayers and social concern.
He urges readers to get beyond “trendy” Christianity to a meaningful relationship with God and an “adventurous” faith.
Epperly is professor of practical theology and continuing education at Lancaster Theological Seminary and an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
He co-pastors a congregation in Lancaster called Disciples United Community Church.
