Pam Ward's deft reading style enhances Phyllis Tickle's discussion of current changes in fundamental Christianity, which she calls the "Great Emergence." The author's message comes from dialogues she has had with lay and ordained Christians since she became founding religion editor for PUBLISHERS WEEKLY in the 1990s. Ward seamlessly delivers the author’s rationale for this transformative change, which she believes is as radical and far-reaching as the Reformation. In a lighter vein, she uses subtle humor to deliver the author’s comparison of the "Great Emergence" to a "rummage sale of ideas," which occurs within Christendom every 500 years. Ward conveys Tickle's keen insights and complex ideas with authenticity, simplicity, and clarity. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2009]
