Praise for The God of Intimacy and Action
"Tony Campolo...and Mary Darling...are like gunpowder and a spark. The result is a dynamite book that many have been waiting a long time for."
"In 25 years, when we look back as journalists chronicling this era of religious reawakening-this book likely will turn up as a classic....This book is both a manifesto-and a sturdy guidebook-for the journey of reclaiming much that has been lost."
-David Crumm, founder of Read the Spirit
"Tony Campolo and Mary Darling...are two first rate minds grappling with classical and contemporary theology, and then adding to that a set of concrete practices...The Network of Spiritual Progressives (including those of us who are not Christian) can draw much wisdom and guidance from this book."
"I know both Tony and Mary personally and can testify to the genuineness of their search for spiritual wholeness. It is a search that always holds in creative tension a profound intimacy with God through Christ with a vigorous engagement in the social realities of our day."
-Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline
"Darling and Campolo sift through the dirt of Christendom and uncover the precious treasures of our faith."
-Shane Claiborne, founding member of The Simple Way community; author of The Irresistible Revolution; and recovering sinner
