The Concept

Three authors/friends/public speakers have hit the road for the summer, barnstorming churches around the country in a cross between an old time tent revival, book tour, and performance art.  Speaking at churches large and small, Tony Jones, Doug Pagitt, and Mark Scandrette present a 90-minute show that will combine humor and passion, speaking and video, preaching and song. Audiences are entertained, to be sure, but, more importantly, they are given a vision of an alternative Christianity, one that it woefully lacking in today’s world—this alternative is a Christianity of adventurous theology, passionate faithfulness, postmodern wit, and unrelenting concern for the justice and peace that God offers.

Their message is for Christians and non-Christians alike, and they’re performing in churches of every stripe: Lutheran, Presbyterian, Covenant, Episcopal, American Baptist, Assemblies of God, Southern Baptist, Methodist, Disciples of Christ, non-denominational, and Reformed Church in America.
